GETTING STARTED

Work with your healthcare provider

The first step in any journey is to establish a plan with your healthcare provider; take about the risks that may be involved with any secondary medical conditions.

ONCE APPROVED

Once your insurance explains the costs covered by your plan and given co-pays, we can order the medication for your first visit.

make an appointment

Once you have decided to pursue treatment, contact our office to set up an initial consultation. 

At this consultation, we will go over your medical history and fill out SPRAVATO® enrollment forms.

PREPARING FOR treatment

You'll need to plan for rides to and from the office due to possible side effects affecting mental alertness and motor coordination, you won't be able to drive or do anything where you need to be completely alert until the day after treatment.

SUBMITTING INSURANCE

After the proper forms are filled out and signed, we will request pharmacy records and submit to your insurance to see what is covered*.

*This process may take longer due to submission of prior authorizations to your insurance

TREATMENT DAYS

Treatments will commence under the supervision of a healthcare provider, who will show you how to use the SPRAVATO​® device. You will be monitored for 2 hours prior to discharge.
