IS INVOLVED IN A CONSULTATION?
only provide consultation in person. Although we do provide telephone contact
for patients who have been seen in our office, we are not able to perform
telephone consultations for patients we have not seen. Unfortunately, we
cannot make exceptions because it is not possible to be certain of all relevant
factors without an actual visit.
consultations are comprehensive and last an hour or longer. The visit includes
discussion of your current problems, a detailed review of your medical history,
a physical examination, a clear explanation of the causes of your problem or
problems, discussion of various treatment options and initiation of appropriate
treatment. Ample time is provided for answering your questions.
best if your records, especially reports of any tests you have had in recent
years, are available at the time of the first visit.
Unfortunately, it frequently happens that records are not sent in a timely
fashion by doctorís offices or hospitals. For this reason, it is recommended
that you obtain copies yourself and bring a set or your records and lab
reports with you to the visit. These will be kept as part of your
permanent record so we recommend that you retain an additional copy for
you are not able to get your records in time, it is still best to come as
scheduled and have the records sent later.
MANY VISITS WILL BE NECESSARY?
only rare exceptions, everything is covered in the single visit. Should you need
additional lab tests, you will be given a lab requisition form at time the
visit. You will not need to stay in New York to have tests done. Once tests are
complete, results will be reviewed with you by phone. You will not need to
return simply to go over test results.
you are coming from a distance, follow-up visits are not expected, though they
may be desirable if you live in or close to New York City. We see patients from
all over the US and some from abroad so we make provisions for those who can
only come once.
INSURANCE AND FEES:
Many female hormonal conditions are complex and require a detailed history and
complete physical examination in order to determine the underlying cause and
plan treatment. Generally the consultation lasts an hour or longer so that all
concerns are fully covered. It is not possible to provide this level of service
under the constraints now imposed by managed care. For this reason we do not
participate in any insurance plans. However at the end of each visit you will be
provided with a "superbill" which gives the coding and other information
required by most insurance companies to process a claim. Some plans will provide
substantial reimbursement but this depends on your specific contract. If you
have questions regarding your coverage, the best source of information is the
benefits department where you work or your insurance company. It is almost
impossible for health care providers to know what will be covered by a specific
charge will apply for the initial comprehensive consultation.
Payment at the completion of the visit can be made by cash, check, Visa,
MasterCard or Discover.
tests are usually covered by insurance though in some cases, you may have to
have the lab order approved by your primary physician.

receive emails asking for referrals to doctors in various parts of the country.
Although I sympathize with the need to find someone locally, I regret that I am
not able to provide this service. Even when I know doctors in an area, I usually
have no means to determine how they approach specific hormonal conditions.
only way I can suggest to try to find a hormone specialist locally is to ask
other doctors and friends. Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell how seriously
your problem will be taken until the actual consultation. There are many
excellent physicians in the U.S. but our health care system does not provide any
certain way to find the right one for your needs.

Our office is located in a safe, central midtown location. Any taxi will be able

convenient for access to New York, but is an acceptable alternative.

comfortable, if not luxurious, include the Comfort Inn - Midtown, Comfort Inn -
