GOOD MENTAL HEALTH IS OUR GOAL

 

  • Call the office to speak with our intake specialist. She will do a brief screening interview and present it to Dr. Lynn to review. If he agrees to evaluate you as a new patient, the intake   specialist will call you and outline what you must do prior to your first consultation with Dr. Lynn.
    ______________________________________________________
  • She will tell you to first get a referral from your primary care doctor and prior approval from your insurance company which may need to be done by our office. No appointment will be scheduled until you have done this.
    ______________________________________________________
  • You will be given an appointment time and date. Come  at least forty-five minutes earlier to fill out necessary paper work. If you arrive late, it will cut into your consultation time. This is your time, no other patient is scheduled for your time slot.
    If you are an adult seeking evaluation for possible ADHD, be aware that an essential part of your evaluation may include the  CNS-VS test which may be covered by insurance. Since treatment utilizes medications that are controlled substances, no adult will be treated without the confirmation of a positive  CNS-VS test. You can discuss the cost with the intake person.
    ______________________________________________________
  • If you miss your first appointment and have not given this office 72hrs notice, you may not be rescheduled.If you have commercial insurance, there is an administrative fee to cover the office time needed to get you scheduled. Time for new patients is at a premium. If you need to reschedule your appointment, it may be weeks before you can be rescheduled.

  • Bring any reports from other doctors. Bring any psychological testing done before. Request that your prior psychiatrist send a copy of records to this office. They can be faxed to 301-777-2906.
    ______________________________________________________
  • Bring all medications, vitamins, and herbal medicines that you are currently taking so that Dr. Lynn can review them.

  • Although Dr. Lynn accepts most insurances, ultimately the bill is your responsibility. His contract is with you to treat you, not the insurer. On your first visit you are expected to bring proof of insurance with the insurance card. You are expected to pay your copayment each visit or you will not be seen. If you have not met your deductible for the year, you will be responsible for the full amount authorized by your insurer each visit till your deductible is met.______________________________________________________
  • Follow up visits, if Dr. Lynn agrees to see you for treatment, are scheduled at 15 minute visits. If you are late, you may not be seen. Since Dr. Lynn's office time is at a premium, missed visits are charged for and will not be paid by insurance companies. You can avoid this fee by notifying this office 24 hours in advance. At each visit you will get 2 reminders for your next visit and we have instituted an automated calling  service that will call your phone 2 days before your visit. Do not call the office to ask when your appointment is.______________________________________________________
  • Currently office hours are between 8:00AM and 4:00PM, Monday to Thursday.______________________________________________________
  • The office is wheel chair accessible and has two handicap accessible bathrooms.
