We want you to come often enough to really get better, and the sliding scale is our way of helping you make that commitment. There is an additional $15 paperwork fee for your first appointment. Please arrive approximately 10 minutes early for your initial visit to complete the new patient forms. Cash or check only. We have a strict 12-hour cancellation policy.
