Happy New Year! Now that the holidays have past and we all have made our resolutions, how can we ensure that we follow through? First of all, resolutions are rarely kept. In fact, in 2013 only 8% of people actually were successful in completing their resolution! What was the number one ranked resolution in 2013? According to a University of Scranton study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, weight loss was the number one ranked resolution of that year. So how can you better your odds at being successful? This one is a harder question to answer, because we all have our reasons and we all have our own obstacles to overcome. Looking at it from a more general stance, this is how you can better your chances of following through.
As of today, I am able to accept United Behavioral Health (United Healthcare) and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Rhode Island patients. Please call 401-829-6561 to schedule an appointment.
I am happy to announce that credentialing is now finished with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Rhode Island. Please feel free to call 401-829-6561 to schedule an appointment. Our credentialing with United Healthcare is almost complete and should be ready by the end of October. Don't forget our new location in beautiful East Greenwich Rhode Island, right on Main Street!
Credentialing is taking longer than I had expected, but I've been assured that the process is almost finished. Within the next month I will be accepting new patients in RI who have Blue Cross or United for health insurance. I will be renting a space on Main street in East Greenwich starting in October and will be available on Wednesdays to start with the hope of expanding those days and hours after the holidays. Our new location in Rhode Island will be at 110 Main st, East Greenwich (Suite 305).
If you need an appointment or have friends or patients looking for medication evaluation or therapy, please call 401-829-6561. I am now accepting new patients at both locations and am booking at the end of the third week of August. Don't forget you can also find me on Psychology Today!
