+ What can I expect when I call for my first appointment?
When scheduling, our intake coordinator will greet you warmly and ask if you are aware of what services you're interested in receiving. We try to fit clients appropriately based on service, availability, and insurance, if needed. Once we determine what clinician will be the best fit, we proceed in opening an account which requires that we ask the client for their name, date of birth, address, phone number and email.
Next, if using insurance, the client's co-pay (if applicable), eligibility and benefits are verified. Finally, to hold the appointment, we do require that clients leave a deposit to hold their desired date and time. If you keep your appointment, you will be refunded upon your arrival. Please note that you are free to use whatever card you would like for each appointment.
All clinicians at Summit's Edge are paneled individually with insurance companies, please call to confirm which insurances each therapist accepts.
