FAQs

Q. Do you treat all mental conditions in children, adolescents and adults?
A. I offer evaluations of all mental disorders throughout the life cycle. I treat mental disorders through pharmacotherapy (medication) and limited psychotherapy. There are certain therapeutic techniques that cannot be offered in the setting of a solo private practice. For such occasions, I will offer options of treatment in different settings.
Q. Do you treat mental conditions in an inpatient setting if necessary?
A. I am not associated with any hospital in the area, and therefore, if one of my patient’s needs inpatient treatment, they will be referred to the closest Emergency Room or to the Gulfport Stabilization Unit of the State of Mississippi.
Q. If at the end of the initial evaluation I do not agree with the treatment plan that you propose will I be charged for that session?
A. If following the initial evaluation either you or I decide that we should not continue with treatment, you will not be charged with the initial evaluation fee.  
Q. I have never heard of a psychiatric practice being operated out of the psychiatrist’s residence. That seems to me unusual.
A. I will agree this is not common; however, this arrangement offers advantages to the clients and myself. Such advantages are increased assurance of confidentiality, flexibility in making appointments, decreased impact of missed appointments and low operating costs.

FAQs Specific to Suboxone Treatment


Q. What is Suboxone Induction Phase?
A. Induction is the period of transition from Opiates to Suboxone. It consists of 24 hours of full abstinence from all Opiates followed by three sessions with the doctor in three consecutive days for the purpose of starting and titrating Suboxone as necessary.
Q. What is stabilization Phase?
A. Stabilization follows Induction and lasts a month and a half. It consists of three more sessions with the doctor with the purpose of solidifying abstinence from all addictive drugs and alcohol.
Q. What is Maintenance Phase?
A. Maintenance follows Stabilization and consists of ongoing scheduled sessions every 4 weeks with the purpose of maintaining abstinence and promoting recovery.
Q. How long does Maintenance Phase last?
A. There is no specified time limit for Maintenance. Tapering off Suboxone at some point is a decision made by the patient and supported by the doctor when the patient has been fully reintegrated in social and work environments and is well versed in 12 Step Recovery.
Q. What is the cost of Suboxone Treatment?
A. 1. Induction Phase: $500.00
    2. Stabilization Phase: $300.00
    3. Maintenance Phase: $80.00 per session and $20 for random Urine Drug Screens.
