Services between visits 
with their fees

We give established patients the ability to request many services from the doctor without coming in for a visit. Some of these are unusual for a medical practice to offer..

For these services we charge a fee when they are not done during an office visit with the doctor. During the visit there is no extra charge for any of these services. 

We strive to keep these fees very reasonable, while respecting the amount of the doctor's time required for the service. We charge by the minute, instead of in the 20, 40, and 60 minute time blocks of office visits. 

Below is a list of the services available for established patients, was well as how they are charged. 

Telephone consultations

Available for urgent situations of existing patients when Dr. Ginsburg is not in the office. (Email is the preferred mode for non urgent situations.)

Cost:
Brief consultations are not charged, such as a simple question or an uncomplicated exchange.

Telephone consultation are charged per minute, at the rate of an office visit, except charged to the minute of doctor time used, including time to update you records and research the doctor may need to do, such as looking up interactions of medicines you would be taking.
