For our routine telehealth appointments, patients are advised to book a 15-minute appointment time slot for each specific issue as our providers are unable to efficiently address multiple patient concerns in a single 15-minute time frame. Although some issues can be addressed together in one 15-minute appointment time slot, not all issues can be addressed together in a 15-minute appointment time slot. An example of issues that can be discussed in a single 15-minute appointment time slot is a patient booking a sick visit to discuss a complaint of cough, ear pain, sore throat, sinus congestion, along with purulent eye discharge. These are commonly grouped under an upper respiratory infection sick visit.
Sick visits are separated by body systems. Patient having symptoms related to respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, urogenital system, and the integumental (skin) systems are advised to book these visits in different appointment time slots. This can be done on the same day with multiple 15-minute appointment time slots as indicated by their need, booked together or the patient can prioritize and schedule to have these issues addressed during different appointment time slots on different calendar dates.
Patients are advised that each 15-minute appointment time slot requires a $35 appointment fee schedule. Our office sometimes has a discount for patients who have multiple issues to discuss with our providers. These discounts vary during different times of the year. Patients are advised to contact our office at 832-810-4615 to inquire about current office promotions.

Unfortunately, if you are needing to schedule a follow up appointment for medication management and have an acute illness needing evaluation during that time frame, you are advised to book for a double time slot as this will be considered two separate issues and will generate the allocated $35 fees multiplied by 2 ($70). Our fee schedules are set comparatively lower than the average fee schedules. We are only able to accommodate this and keep our practice functional with our current billing protocol and model.

The best way to determine this is to categorize the issues under the categories of ACUTE/SICK VISIT or CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGMENT. Then further, under the main ACUTE and CHRONIC issues categories, separate the issues under different body systems.

For ACUTE illness category, examples of common concerns we treat are, cute cough, sore throat, ear infections, sinusitis, pink eye, eye infections, oral sores, nausea/vomiting, vaginal yeast, flu, covid-19, tooth infections, herpes breakouts, animal or insect bites, stomach infections, food poisoning, poison ivy, asthma flares up, etc. (commonly categorized under sick visits… individually). These can be separated by grouping them under skin, GI, Respiratory, genitourinary systems respectively.

For the CHRONIC illness category, the appointments can be separated different body systems like Psychiatry conditions (anxiety, depression, insomnia, panic attacks, PTSD,OCD, mood disorders, etc.), OBGYN issues (birth control managements), Endocrinology (hormone evaluation/treatment), Weight management (phentermine, Semaglutides, Tirzepatde, HGH peptides), Common PCP related issues (High blood pressure, cholesterol, uncomplicated GI Issues, thyroid, etc), neurology issues (migraine headaches, seizures, bells palsy), respiratory issues (asthma, allergies), or chronic dermatology issues ( acne, eczema, scalp fungal infections, toe nail fungus, hair loss, rashes,).

Generally, if your visit requires refill or management of more than 4 routine meds, your visit may need to be grouped in two appointments or two categories. Call the office to clarify.

Unfortunately, the max duration refills our providers write out are 3 months max. patients will have to see our providers routinely for a few months and become established are regular and patients, as well as be stable on their medical plan therapy to be considered for 3months refill orders. We also advise that our 3 months refill visit fee schedule are set at a different fee schedule. The fee schedule is not triple our routine month fee schedule of $35, it is however not set as the routine $35 fee schedule.

Please note that the only date put on this note is the date of your consultation. We do not put back dates or future dates on this document. Because everyone’s recovery process is unique to their body’s metabolic processes, excuse notes issued by our providers generally indicate that patients resume routine activities (work or school) “when well” or “when symptoms resolve”. If a patient’s job requires a document to indicate a specific date to return, the patient may schedule for a “clearance to return to work visit. During this consultation, the provider will evaluate your work responsibilities and issue you a clearance to return to work “with no restrictions” if indicated by their evaluation. If the provider assesses that returning to work is unsafe to the patient or to other coworkers, or if the patient indicates needing a “return to work note with a restriction clause”, the patient will be advised of the need to get a physical evaluation within person service clinician to be issued a return to work with the indicated restriction clause.
