Initial Phone Consultation
When you contact me, I’ll address your concerns and answer questions regarding insurance coverage, payment, and hours of appointment availability. If we feel we are a good fit, we can then set up an initial appointment. My office is in Mission Valley, about 1 mile east of Presidio Park. The building is accessible and has a bus stop about a short block away.
I generally work days, Monday through Friday, and can schedule evening appointments.
