1WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY FREE 15 MINUTE CONSULTATION?
This is a meet and greet opportunity to see if Dr. Emily Ryan would be a good fit as one of your healthcare providers. In the time that this allows, we will discuss your medical needs, expectations, health goals, and what has and has not worked for you in the past. This consultation is an opportunity to explore how we can work together to support your well being while reaching your health goals. This consultation will be over the phone or via videoconference. Due to state laws, Dr. Emily Ryan cannot offer any medical advice during the consultation. We provide this service starting at your New Patient Appointment which you can schedule here.
2WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
A New Patient Appointment is 90 minutes long. You can schedule your appointment here and fill out your New Patient Consent & Intake Forms. We ask that you complete your New Patient Consent & Intake Forms at least 48 hours before your appointment. Before your first visit, Dr. Emily Ryan will have already reviewed your new patient intake forms. During your visit she will take a thorough health history, including but not limited to family history, past medical history, current symptoms, medications and supplements, diet, lifestyle, exercise habits, sleep habits, and stress and energy levels. It is her priority to create a safe space for you to explore your health and wellness goals. At the end of your visit, Dr. Emily Ryan will recommend a thorough wellness plan that is unique to you.
3HOW LONG IS MY APPOINTMENT? HOW MUCH DO APPOINTMENTS COST? HOW DO I PAY?
New Patient Initial Appointments are 90 minutes long. Return Patient Follow Up Appointments are generally 60 minutes long, but can vary from 15-90 minutes. Since the length of Follow Up Appointments may vary at times, the cost is billed in 15 minute increments. Payments are due at the time of service. The cost of prescriptions, supplements, laboratory tests and imaging are not included in the cost of the visit. Please see our scheduling page for all appointment costs and payment details.
4HOW CAN I RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT? WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
Please be aware that I ask patients for a 48-hour notice if they need to reschedule or cancel an appointment. Late cancellations or missed appointments incur a $65.00 fee or greater, as I am unable to reschedule the appointment with another patient without sufficient notice. If you do not call to cancel your appointment and do not show up, you will be charged the full price of the visit. Our FREE 15 minute consultation is complimentary, but if you miss your appointment, you will be charged $25.
5DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
Dr. Emily Ryan does not accept insurance at this time. However, appointment and other additional medical costs may be reimbursed through some health savings accounts (HSA) or flexible spending accounts (FSA). It is helpful to call your insurance provider for more specific information. Please note that we do not call or intervene with your insurance company.
