Frequently Asked Questions

What are your fees?

The fees can vary depending on the type of appointment and the situation. An evaluation of an egg donor, sperm donor, or embryo donor candidate is $600. The joint meeting between intended parents and gestational carrier or between recipients and donors is $250. Contact me for specific pricing of other appointments (e.g., gestational carrier evaluations). Discounts are available for specific populations (e.g., military) and for series of appointments (e.g., if I conduct the GC Evaluation, IP Consultation, and Joint Meeting, then I offer a 10% discount).

How quickly can I be seen?

Once we have the initial email exchange, then you can typically be seen in the next two weeks if you are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays. Other days are available with more advanced notice. A few evening and weekend appointments are available as well. Ensuring that you fill out all paperwork (via a HIPAA compliant online portal) at least 24 hours in advance helps make sure we can move forward with the scheduled appointment.

How can I schedule an appointment?

If you aren't sure what appointments you need, or want further details, send me a message and I’ll contact you via email within two business days to get further details from you. During this email exchange, we’ll discuss what will be involved in the next meetings and we can get you scheduled. If know what type of appointment you need, you can complete the appointment request form to enter your information into my Electronic Health Record (EHR) and get scheduled more quickly.

What do I need to do in advance of the appointment?

Making sure you complete the online paperwork completely, 24 hours in advance of the appointment is critical. I will email you links to access my HIPAA compliant secure portal.

If you are being evaluated, such as an egg donor, sperm donor, or gestational carrier, you will need two devices. A computer (laptop or desktop) that you can complete online assessments on, along with a phone or a tablet can be used for our Zoom call at the same time. Test security for the assessments you’ll be completing requires that I am present (in-person or on Zoom) while you complete them. Two devices is the best method for this.

When can the report be sent to my agency/clinic?

As long as the full payment has been made, reports will be sent within 2-3 days (for intended parent/recipient parent consultations) to 1-2 weeks  (for gestational carrier evaluations), following the last appointment.

What states are you licensed in?

I am licensed in Pennsylvania (License Number: PS017258), New York (License Number: 026109), and Hawaii (License Number: PSY-2174-0). I also can practice telehealth in the states currently participating under the PSYPACT Commission (Mobility Number 6360).
