Policies

Renewing Mindsets is committed to providing a secure and respectful environment for our patients, guided by our comprehensive general policies. Upholding patient privacy and confidentiality is fundamental to our approach, ensuring that protected health information (PHI) is handled with the utmost care. Our commitment to transparent communication extends throughout all aspects of our mental health services.

Furthermore, at Renewing Mindsets, we prioritize creating a collaborative and respectful partnership between our healthcare providers and patients. Our general policies emphasize open communication, ensuring that patients are well-informed about their treatment plans, goals, and any potential risks or benefits associated with their mental health care. We believe that informed decision-making is a crucial aspect of the therapeutic process, fostering trust and empowering individuals to actively participate in their well-being.

In addition to our dedication to patient privacy and communication, Renewing Mindsets places a strong emphasis on cultural competence and inclusivity. We recognize and respect the diversity of our patient population, tailoring our approach to meet individual needs and cultural backgrounds. Our commitment to providing a secure and respectful environment extends beyond clinical interactions, creating a space where individuals feel understood, valued, and supported on their unique mental health journey. Through these overarching principles, Renewing Mindsets strives to not only address the mental health needs of our patients but also to foster a compassionate and inclusive community within our practice.

 
Medication Management

Renewing Mindsets upholds a patient-centric approach in our policies related to medication management, ensuring a thoughtful and personalized approach to each individual's mental health journey. In most cases medication in not prescribed during your initial appointment. Our providers engage in a thorough Initial Psychiatric Evaluation to gain valuable insights into the patient's unique needs, allowing for the development of a tailored medication management plan. This plan includes Four, Eight, and 12-week Follow-Up Visits for current patients, ensuring ongoing support and adjustments to medication regimens as needed. Our commitment to regular follow-up visits is instrumental in tracking progress, managing potential side effects, and fine-tuning medication strategies to optimize effectiveness.

For individuals seeking ADHD medication management, Renewing Mindsets offers specialized services designed to confirm ADHD diagnoses through In-Person ADHD Testing. This service allows for a comprehensive understanding of the individual's cognitive and attentional functioning, enabling our providers to prescribe ADHD medications with precision. Additionally, our ADHD Comprehensive Evaluation, available online, delves into the nuances of ADHD symptoms and psychiatric evaluations, guiding the development of a comprehensive treatment plan. Through these targeted assessments and ongoing medication management, Renewing Mindsets strives to empower individuals with ADHD to achieve optimal mental well-being and functioning.

 
Controlled Substances

In the context of medication management safety, particularly with controlled substances, Renewing Mindsets implements vigilant monitoring throughout the treatment process. This includes regular follow-up visits to assess the patient's response to medication, potential side effects, and any adjustments needed for optimal efficacy. Our providers engage in open communication with patients to ensure they are well-informed about their prescribed medications, emphasizing the importance of adhering to prescribed dosages and reporting any concerns promptly.

Moreover, Renewing Mindsets is dedicated to preventing misuse and diversion of controlled substances. We implement robust safeguards, such as careful documentation, prescription monitoring programs, and regular reassessments of the patient's ongoing need for the medication. By prioritizing patient education, close monitoring, and adherence to best practices, we aim to create a secure environment that promotes the effective and safe use of controlled substances in the context of medication management.

Patient safety is of paramount importance at Renewing Mindsets, particularly in the realm of medication management, especially when it involves controlled substances. Our commitment to ensuring patient safety extends to rigorous protocols and monitoring measures when prescribing and managing medications, especially those classified as controlled substances. 

Our providers adhere to evidence-based practices and closely follow guidelines established by regulatory bodies to guarantee the responsible and safe use of controlled substances. We prioritize thorough Initial Psychiatric Evaluations to comprehensively assess the patient's medical history, mental health condition, and potential risk factors. This holistic approach allows our providers to make informed decisions when considering the prescription of controlled substances.

 
Fees 

In addition to prioritizing patient privacy, Renewing Mindsets is dedicated to transparency in our fee structure and recognizes the need for flexibility in managing appointments. Our fees vary based on the nature and duration of the service, ranging from the Initial Consultation to specialized evaluations and follow-up visits. It is our belief that mental health care should be accessible, and we strive to provide transformative services that are reflective of our commitment to quality care. Our pricing for our services can be viewed below.

Appointments can be rescheduled up to 48 hours before the scheduled time. Additionally, we offer a refund policy that allows refunds to be issued up to 72 hours prior to the scheduled appointment, recognizing the need for flexibility in managing our patients' mental health journey.

  • What is the soonest that I can be seen?
    The fastest way to be seen is through a virtual session, which we can typically schedule within 1-3 days. We can start both the psychiatric evaluation and the ADHD comprehensive assessment virtually. The first part of the ADHD assessment, the psychiatric evaluation, will be done virtually, and then you can come into the office for in-person testing within the next few days. Alternatively, you have the option to complete the entire ADHD comprehensive assessment in one visit to our office.
  • Do you assist with accommodations for school and referral letters?
    Yes, we do. At Renewing Mindsets, we assist with accommodations for school, referral letters, and psychiatric evaluation letters for individuals who have been tested with us and meet the diagnosis criteria. We have helped our clients with accommodation letters for exams such as the LSAT for law school, the MCAT for medical school, the NCLEX for nursing school, as well as the NBME and the MBE (Multistate Bar Examination). Additionally, we write accommodation letters for individuals needing workplace accommodations.
  • How Does ADHD testing work?
    For individuals seeking clarity on ADHD symptoms, adhd diagnosis, or requiring accommodations, our ADHD Comprehensive Evaluation is recommended and offers a thorough assessment that includes both virtual and in-person psychiatric evaluations, followed by in-person computerized ADHD testing. ADHD Comprehensive Evaluation ($460): Includes psychiatric evaluation with computerized TOVA testing. Evaluations can be conducted virtually and in person. This is essential for those seeking an ADHD diagnosis, accommodation, or treatment planning. Standardized ADHD Testing ($255): The purpose of T.O.V.A. (Test of Variables of Attention) testing is to objectively assess attention-related difficulties, such as those associated with ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). This does not include a diagnosis but is to accompany a previous provider's specific request for diagnostic testing only. Accommodations: To obtain ADHD accommodations, a comprehensive ADHD evaluation is necessary, and we provide accommodation letters for an additional fee of $95.
  • I was previously diagnosed. Will you manage my treatment and medication?
    Currently no, we do not manage ongoing treatment and medication for previously diagnosed individuals. Our focus is primarily on conducting ADHD evaluations and ensuring availability for our new patients seeking treatment management.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    Hi, thank you for reaching out to Renewing Mindsets. We are an out-of-network provider and do not accept insurance for ADHD testing. However, we strive to keep our services affordable, with pricing starting at $95. We accept HSA, FSA, debit, and credit card payments. Additionally, we can create a superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement. You can view our appointment availability and detailed pricing on our "Schedule an Appointment" section of the website.
