FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you practice traditional gynecology? This is a very frequent question that I get. I incorporate an integrative approach to health and function as a consultant. I am a hormone and wellness expert for everything from stress and fatigue to abnormal bleeding. Limited exams are performed in the office and you must get your pap smear and breast exams done by your primary doctor or ob/gyn physician. In fact, it is REQUIRED that you have a primary doctor.
What are your office hours? Office hours are in Annapolis on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am-5pm. Most services including consults and coaching can now be conducted via phone and skype after you have been seen in person once and allow for more flexible timing. Call the office at 410-356-4695 if you are interested in this option.
If I miss an appointment, is there a cancellation fee? Yes, our missed appointment fee is $50. Appointments must be cancelled or rescheduled at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. Please call ahead of time to avoid the fee. Full payment is expected at the time of your visit. Fees for any hormone kits are nonrefundable after you have sent it into the lab and it has been processed. There are no refunds for opened supplements.
What insurance do you take? I am currently not contracted with a particular insurance company. I would be considered an "out of network" provider. HMO's and PPO's may not reimburse for care in our office. I am happy to provide a superbill of service for you to submit to your insurance company.
Why does the cost seem more expensive than my regular doctor? Actually, the cost of the visit is less than the cost usually billed to the insurance company for a shorter visit with your regular doctor. Taking a whole body approach and finding the root cause of your issue is an investment in your health. What you will notice here at DiviNeva Health is extremely personalized service including phone calls directly from the physician and unlimited email access.
