What to Expect in Your First Visit
During your initial consultation Dr. Menolascino will review the referral information, spend time getting to know you and gain insights to assess your specific condition. As everyone is unique, Dr. Menolascino will ask a range of questions to understand your particular psychiatric issues.
Prior to your initial consultation we would like your referral information to include your treatment history—preferably provided by your current psychiatrist, psychotherapist and/or primary care doctor. This assists us in better serving you, as past treatment must be documented for consideration for reimbursement by your insurance company. Please find our attached referral form for you and your current provider to complete.
We are an out-of-network provider. Depending on your insurance we often are able to accept assignment of your benefits. TMS is an FDA-approved procedure for Major Depressive Disorders and therefore reimbursable by many insurance policies with periodic reviews for efficacy. Before you begin treatment, it is important to know what annual deductibles, co-payments and fees you may be responsible for. We have been very successful in obtaining TMS insurance coverage for our patients.
