Please note that most consultations are time based. Sometimes patients do email in advance of their appointment medical reports, scans, lab results etc in anticipation that the doctor will read and digest the information ahead of the physical appointment. That would be perfect. Dr Reeder, if his patient load permits, may look only briefly at theses notes prior, but generally they would be discussed as part of your appointment time.
If you do request Dr Reeder work on the medical information out of normal consulting hours and prior to the consult, then added time will be invoiced.
If you case is quite complex please ensure therefore you book appropriate time. It isnt fair to you or the doctor to cram lots into a short time. We do understand budgets -we all have those.
THE FEES – these apply to: In-Person, TeleHealth ie Phone, Zoom and Email Correspondence
Fees Guide – based on time
If you have strict time constraints please let the doctor know, otherwise if less or more time is needed, the fee will be adjusted accordingly. Billing is generally based on time.
After the consultation is completed, additional fees will be added for the time to ‘write up the case’ and forward the report to you. We will be as fair as possible and usually will undercharge for this time. Often it takes as long as the actual consultation.
Please note that Dr Reeder is a ‘private’ doctor so receives no subsidies or other government handouts as do standard medical practices.
