Initial visits are 90 minutes. Please complete your new patient forms directly on the Patient Portal at least 48 hours prior to your visit, so Dr. Sethi can review them in advance. (Login instructions for the secure Patient Portal will accompany your confirmation email). Alternately, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment to complete your new patient forms in the office.
Follow up visits are 60 minutes. Each of the visits in the Lifestyle Essentials Program are 60 minutes except for the initial visit which can range between 60-100 minutes.
Support between visits is provided by email and phone during regular business hours. There is no charge for a quick question. More extended phone and email follow-up support is billed by the hour in 15-minute increments.
Note: Dr. Sethi does not take call on evening and weekends.
Fees, Insurance and Special Access
The practice does not accept insurance. Appropriate superbills are provided upon request, for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
Dr. Sethi has chosen a direct-pay model because insurance payments currently do not cover the amount of doctor-patient time and level of care she provides, and that she believes is most helpful to patients with conditions best treated by integrative medicine.
