After Hours Walk In Clinic

Like other clinics we do charge for no shows and cancellations less than 48 hour notice which is a flat $100. However recently we have created a way for our patients to avoid the fee under certain conditions. On Monday and Thursday nights we hold a walk in clinic for our established patients who missed their appointment or canceled with less than 48 hour notice. (Not available for new patients) From 6 PM to 7 PM, we will see anybody who shows up before 6:59 PM. You may not have to wait at all or you may have to wait up to an hour depending when you show up and how many other people are waiting in line before you. It will likely be a very quick visit to review meds and send in refills. No therapy will be offered during this time. We will bill your insurance or charge you the regular cash fee for medication management only. Please do not make a habit of using the walk in clinics. If you prefer scheduled very short visits please call the office so we can plan in advance during regular business hours. The patient is required to attend the walk-in clinic that same week he misses his scheduled appointment for the penalty fee not be charged (Can't spill over to the next week).

Talk and Walk Sessions

We believe in nature and light exercise are complementary to mental health work. This is why we offer Talk and Walk appointments. Our office is right by the Boise Greenbelt, and together we can walk and be out in nature while we talk about your problems. Let’s get those neurotransmitters working! You can call us at 208-918-0958.
