Office Hours By Appointment Only: Wednesday, 10:30 am to 5:00 pm; also with
later hours on Monday and Tuesday. On Thursdays I am away from the
private practice office.
The office is located in Northampton, near the towns of Amherst, Hadley, and Easthampton, and is within a reasonable
driving distance for many residents of the Pioneer Valley. It is close to Smith College and Cooley Dickinson Hospital.
Current patients: Messages will usually be returned within 24 hours or the next business day
(which can be the following week). Plan ahead to allow at least 48 hours for medication refills. Current clients
can also make use of the private messaging system inside the secure eRecord system for clinical
communications, as it is more secure than regular email. Your next appointment date and time can also be found
by logging into the portal.

I do not return telephone calls or emails. You may leave non-urgent messages which will be promptly returned upon
my return to the office. During extended absences, I have arrangements with another psychiatrist to help with any
clinical needs during routine business hours.
If you have an urgent or emergent matter, please contact your local emergency services (in Northampton,

Currently I am a provider for all Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Blue Care Elect (PPO/EPO), Blue Precision/PPO Blue Options v.3, Preferred Blue PPO, Preferred Blue PPO
Options v.3, and Federal Blue Cross plans are all accepted. Most out-of-state BCBS plans are accepted,
but not all, so these have to be discussed with me before our first appointment. Blue Benefit
Administrators of MA is also accepted.
I am also in-network for Aetna and Health New
I am also a provider for Harvard Pilgrim and Health Plans Inc.
As of July 1, 2013, Unicare and state GIC plans (Tufts GIC) have changed their contracts
to "carve out" mental health management to Beacon Health Strategies, for whom I am not a provider.
Patients with these plans can speak with me about out-of-network GIC coverage.
I am not accepting any new patients with CIGNA insurance or Medicare insurance or Network Health, or
with any insurance plans that "carve out" their mental health claims to CIGNA or Magellan or Value
Options. I do not accept Humana insurance any longer.
This office practice is not on any Mass Health or BMC Healthnet or Commonwealth Care panels at this time,
nor is it on Fallon or Magellan plans.
Always check with your insurance company to see if you need a pre-authorization for a first visit
with a psychiatrist before seeing me. This can prevent financial stress and billing troubles, and is relatively
easy for you to do by phone. If you have any question about coverage, please clarify that with your insurance plan
before our first appointment.
It is also very useful to ask your insurance company if they outsource or "carve out" their mental health claims
processing to another insurance company, and to have that information available when you speak with me.
