Frequently Asked Questions

To better assist you, we have compiled a list of questions we are frequently asked by our patients and their families. Please browse below to answer many general questions.

We do not contract in-network with insurance companies. Our patients pay the full appointment fees at the time of the service and we can provide super bills patients can submit for reimbursement directly from their insurance companies. We cannot guarantee reimbursement or inform patients of what will be covered as insurance plans vary. For pricing questions, please call or email our help desk.

We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions. If you would like to know more, please visit our What We Treat page.

Children attend the intake appointment with Dr. Mark Ruggiero – but for intakes with Dr. Serin or therapy appointments, only the parents attend, no children. If you have an older teenager that would like to be involved in the intake that can be discussed.

We ask that if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment time that you give us a 2 business day notice to avoid any charges to the card on file.

Unless an adult is under guardianship or is severely mentally ill, we request that adults take responsibility for scheduling their own appointments rather than a third party.

Children with ADHD and anxiety appear to experience more emotional dysregulation than their peers. While they experience the same emotions as individuals their age, they experience them much more frequently and intensely. They may be more likely to get stuck and caught up in their emotion due to difficulties with executive functioning skills and seeing the bigger picture.
