Yes. We strive to be as accessible as possible and are in-network with select insurance plans. It’s important to note that insurance only covers services that are “medical necessary.” Thus, cosmetic services are not covered by insurance
We’re proud to work with Medicare and the following PPO plans:
If you have an insurance that’s not included in the above list, then we’re most likely an out of network provider. You’ll be responsible for the full cost of your visit. We’re more than happy to submit claims to your insurance carrier on your behalf for potential reimbursement. If your plan has out of network benefits, we’ll refund you for any reimbursement we receive. If you have Health Savings Account (HSA), medical services are HSA-eligible expenses for reimbursement.
Although we do our best to check your insurance eligibility and verify your benefits prior to your appointment, we can’t guarantee that the information you receive will be accurate. Ultimately, it’s your responsibility to understand your insurance benefits and your insurance company will determine your patient responsibility after processing your claim. We’re always here to help, but if you need specific information about your plan and benefits, we recommend that you contact the phone number on the back of your insurance card. If you have any questions about this, feel free to email us!
Fees depend on the nature of your visit and whether any procedures are performed. For new patients visiting us for the first time, the consultation fee is $150. For existing patients, the consultation fee is $100. Procedures or biopsies are performed during your visit will incur an additional cost and we will discuss them with you prior to performing them.
It’s easy – request an appointment online or give us a call at 415-329-5100. We’re happy to help!
The length of your appointment depends on the nature of your visit. Most standard consultations are 15 minutes in length. Quick visits, like prescription, follow-ups and suture removals may be a bit shorter. Procedures that are more involved – like surgeries, cosmetic treatments or excisions – can range anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes.
At this time, we’re only open on weekdays.
If you are more than 10 minutes late to your visit, we’ll do our very best to accommodate you. We hope you understand that you may have an extended wait time. In the event that we can’t accommodate you, we’ll help you reschedule to the soonest available appointment time.
We keep a credit card on file to make your experience seamless and to save trees. Oftentimes, there is a small balance remaining after a visit which is not completely covered by your insurance provider.
It’s no different from keeping your credit card on file with Uber/Lyft or providing your credit card when you make a hotel reservation. We will always email you an invoice explaining these charges so that if you prefer to pay with a different card, you can do so online. Otherwise, we’ll charge your credit card on file after 5 days.
For cosmetic services, payment is due in full at the time of service.
Absolutely. Credit card information is stored in our PCI-compliant payment gateway, which employs the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. Once entered, our staff cannot access your credit card number – only the last 4 digits are visible. You’re of course welcome to change the card on file at any time, just let us know.
In order to preserve the integrity of our schedule and to reserve each individual patient’s full appointment time with our doctors, we require that you notify us at least one full business day prior to your scheduled appointment if you need to cancel or reschedule. We charge a $100 dollar no-show fee if you miss your scheduled visit and fail to notify us one full business day prior to your scheduled appointment. For example, if your appointment is on Monday at 10AM, we require that you notify us by Friday at 10AM in order to avoid the cancellation fee.
Trust us, the last thing we want to do is collect a no-show fee. We’d much rather you show up for your scheduled appointment or, if something comes up, notify us at least 1 business day in advance. As a small, startup practice operating in an expensive market, it’s critical for us to maintain the integrity of our schedule. We never double-book appointment slots. When we receive advanced notice from you that you can no longer make your appointment, it allows us to accommodate patients with urgent medical needs. No-shows prevent those patients from being seen. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
