Fees and Payment Policy

At Brightview Psychiatry we are committed to delivering the personalized attention that you and your family deserve. To enhance our ability to collaborate effectively with both you and your healthcare team, we operate on a fee-for-service framework. This guarantees the optimal allocation of time and resources to ensure your comprehensive well-being. This means we do not participate in any form of health insurance, including Medicare/Medicaid. Our status is that of an "Out-of-Network" provider. However, we can furnish you with a comprehensive invoice, called “superbill” that you can submit to your insurance company in order to seek reimbursement. The extent of reimbursement depends on your individual insurance plan and whether it includes provisions for 'out of network' services. Prior to proceeding, it would be beneficial for you to reach out to your insurance provider.

Initial Evaluation

    Experience comprehensive care for any age who exhibits emotional, developmental, educational, medical, or behavioral problems with Dr. Patel at Brightview Psychiatry. During your initial evaluation, Dr. Patel will conduct a thorough assessment to understand your unique needs and concerns. Through a compassionate and personalized approach, he will collaboratively create a treatment plan tailored to your mental health goals.

    Please be prepared to spend 60 to 90 minutes at the new patient evaluation. All new patient evaluations require a 60 minutes appointment and may take up to 90 minutes depending on your needs. Parents/guardians must be in attendance for all child or adolescent appointments.

    Kindly share prior testing, treatment, and school records via the patient portal.

Cancellations and Missed Appointments

At Brighview Psychiatry, we reserve a spot just for you to provide the best treatment possible and dedicate our time to serve your needs. We understand schedules can change with short notice, however, we do request that you call to cancel or reschedule your appointment at least 48 hours (2 business days) in advance for any appointment changes. This gives us the opportunity to offer the appointment to another person in need. In cases where less than 48 hours or 2 business days' notice is given, or if an appointment is missed without notice (no show), the full appointment fee will be applied.If payment for no call/no-show is not able to be collected by our office, it is due prior to scheduling your next appointment.Exceptional circumstances will be considered and discussed on an individual basis.
