Thank you for scheduling a consultation. Here’s what to expect!
Your First Visit: Your initial visit will last approximately 1 hour. It consists of an in-depth interview focusing on your current symptoms, your medical history, lifestyle issues and dietary habits. Typically, at the end of the first visit, blood work and other pertinent specialty testing will be ordered. See below for fee information.
Follow-Up Visits: the first follow up visit usually takes place 2-3 weeks after your initial appointment and lasts 45-60 minutes. At this time Dr. Tommey will review your test results in detail, perform a focused physical examination as indicated,* and start you on a comprehensive treatment program. The first follow-up visit will also include ample time for you to ask questions and to gain a solid understanding of the treatment plan that has been designed for you.
*If you are female, it is recommended that you bring the report of your most recent gynecological exam/PAP smear, mammogram and bone density test. If you have not had these screening tests Dr. Tommey will be happy to provide you with referrals.
Subsequent follow-up visits vary in length and will be scheduled as necessary, based upon your individual health care needs. In general, the first visit is done in person and follow ups are done by phone or in person.
Scope of Practice: Dr. Tommey’s services are intended to complement those provided by your primary care physician; therefore she does not refill prescriptions from other practitioners nor does she handle urgent or emergency medical situations. Patients are urged to maintain their relationship with their primary physician. If you do not have one, a referral list can be provided.
Appointments may be booked by calling 805-295-6095. Each visit (in person or phone consultation) costs $240 which covers up to 1 hour spent with Dr. Tommey. The following is the fee schedule:
- 55 minutes $230
- 50 minutes $220
- 45 minutes $210
- 40 minutes $195
- 35 minutes $180
- 30 minutes $165
- 15 minutes $85
The rate of $85/15 minutes will also be charged for time spent by the doctor to fill out special paperwork requested by patients or to answer patients’ questions on the phone.
Once you have scheduled an appointment, you will be asked for your credit card information, in order to book your reservation for the scheduled appointment time. We will not charge your card until the date/time of your appointment. Charges will be billed at the time of service. Checks, cash and VISA, MC are accepted. Please be on time and have all paperwork filled out as charges will begin being billed as of the scheduled appointment time even if you are late or need to use that time to fill out paper work. Appointment spaces are limited and there is much demand so we thank you for your understanding.
The cost of laboratory work is not included in the cost of the office or phone visit. Due to the complex nature of Dr. Tommey’s practice she does not bill insurance plans or Medicare. You will be given a superbill or invoice for visits so that you can submit the charges to your insurance for reimbursement. This is not possible with HMO’s or Medicare.
Cancellation Policy: Lost appointment slots are very costly and take away valuable time from other patients who are waiting to see the doctor. Failure to notify us at least 3 business days in advance will result in your credit card being charged as if you had attended the scheduled appointment. Thank you for your understanding.
“I look forward to working with you!”
Ann Marie Tommey, M.D.
