PHILOSOPHY of treatment:
Dr Azam believes in honest one to one interactions. He trusts patients to as much extent as he can for whatever is bothering them however, he is aware of the things certain individuals might not want to divulge as long as it’s not related to polypharmacy, prescription duplications by other offices or addictive medications being mis- used. However, he believes individuals are the ultimate in charge of their treatment choices. He likes giving feedback and advice but he refrains from imposing his ideas. However, he believes in continued dialogue for the best treatment options and outcomes.Patient criteria: 18 onwards till mid 70’s. He prefers individuals to make their own appointments so that full Confidentiality can be maintained. It’s a small settings office and Dr Azam cannot provide any case management. He believes patients who cannot manage their medications and are severely unwell shall preferably call Mental Health Clinics where there is a provision of case management and full family therapy and social work Services.
Dr Azam accepts Self pay patients that are affordable rates. Dr Azam values his time and his patient’s time and expects them to be on time and notify well in advance if they cannot make their appointments to avoid cancellation fees. Additionally, Aetna and Cigna insurances are accepted as long as patients’understand their insurance benefits and deductibles. Certain insurances carry high deductibles and hence insurances might not pay for any of the sessions unless the deducible for the year has been met. Patients must call their insurance beforehand so as to avoid confusion.
