Appointment Information

Your First Appointment

Your first appointment will allow our staff to gain an understanding of your concerns, problems, and symptoms. It is usually scheduled to be 40-60 minutes long. During this time, we will work with you to develop a plan of treatment, including medication (if indicated) and/or a referral to a qualified psychotherapist.

  • If you have health insurance, please remember to bring your up to date insurance information to ensure that your claim is processed and expedited correctly.
  • Arrive 20-minutes before the time of your actual appointment in order to have time to complete clinic, insurance, family and medical history documentation for use during your first appointment.

Follow-up Appointments

Will be 20 minutes long for medication management 55 minutes long for psychotherapy sessions.

They will consist of monitoring your progress as you follow a program of prescribed medication and/or therapy. They will be scheduled at the intervals agreed upon by you and the clinician working with you. To schedule an appointment, call, fax or email us as detailed in the accompanying information sheet.

Cancellations, rescheduled appointments, and late arrivals

  • Appointments must be rescheduled or canceled at least 24 hours in advance by phone or fax, or 72 hours in advance by email. The 24 hours is defined to include cancellations left on voice mail or faxed prior to 10 p.m. the evening before an appointment.
  • Cancellations the day of the appointment, email cancellations dated less than 3 days in advance, and appointments missed without notice will be charged in full (insurance does not pay for these).
  • We strive to stay on time as much as possible. We ask that you come right at your appointment time (or a few minutes early) so that our schedule-and other patients-are not delayed. Anyone arriving up to 10 minutes late will still be seen, though your time with Dr. Geiger will be shortened. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, we may choose to reschedule your appointment for another time. Repeated too-late arrivals will be charged for even if you are not seen.
