To Schedule an Appointment
You may book your initial acupuncture appointment on-line by clicking the Book An Appointment button on any page of the website. Or you may call the office at (415) 596-1600 to schedule your appointment. After scheduling your appointment, you will be emailed a confirmation which has a medical history and informed consent for you to complete online.
If you prefer to fill out paper copies of your forms and send them via email (to firstname.lastname@example.org) you will find the forms here: Consents and Privacy Practices and Health Intake Form. Or if you cannot access the forms electronically please arrive 15 minutes before your initial appointment to allow time to complete the forms in person.
You can call to schedule a free 10-minute consultation to answer any questions and to learn more about my services.
Patients are responsible for payment at the time of service and we will gladly provide you with an itemized receipt. This receipt contains all needed required for your submission to a health savings account (HSA), Flex-Spending plan, or health insurance reimbursement.
To find out if your insurance will cover acupuncture, contact your medical insurance company to see if acupuncture is a covered service under your plan and if you are able to see providers out-of-network. Ask for specific details of coverage since these vary for each policy. Specifically ask if you have a deductible to be met before services are covered, if there are diagnosis exclusions, the number of visits allowed, the percentage covered, and if there is a maximum amount paid for each visit.
Payment for acupuncture appointments may be used toward flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts– talk to your employer about this program.
Patients are asked to make any schedule changes or cancellations 24 hours (1 full business day) prior to their scheduled time. Patients will be charged the full service fee for cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment, unless the cancellation is due to medical necessity.
