Dr. Yissell Delvalle, MD, FASAM
Length and Nature of Appointments
During your first visit, Dr. Delvalle will ask about your reasons for seeking psychiatric care and your goals for the future. After the initial visit, your appointments will last between 30 and 50 minutes depending on the nature of your treatment. At the end of the initial consultation appointment, Dr. Delvalle provides a clinical diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Subsequent appointments are scheduled at a frequency Dr. Delvalle determines to be appropriate to the clinical issues at hand. A commitment to regular follow-up appointments is essential in order to monitor clinical response to treatment and to optimize outcome
Late or Missed Appointments
Dr. Delvalle begins and ends each appointment on time. Please contact Dr. Delvalle with at least 24 hours workday notice to cancel an appointment or the full appointment fee will be charged. Please keep in mind that missed appointments disrupt your progress in treatment.
Non-urgent clinical issues should be discussed at appointments. Dr. Delvalle appreciates telephone calls only being made to the office for urgent matters that cannot wait until the next appointment. If extended phone time is requested by a patient, a fee for a phone appointment will be charged. Please do not email or text about clinical matters.
Medications and Refills
Inform all of your doctors about all of your medications and any new medical problems. Dr. Delvalle does not call in prescriptions in lieu of an appointment. Prescription refills are given at regular appointments. Requests for prescription refills by telephone from patients who are not attending regular appointments will not be granted, as clinical issues regarding medication prescriptions and refills should always be discussed in person.
