All meetings and discussions occur at locations convenient to the client, understanding that not all clients feel comfortable or fully expressive in a typical doctor’s office.  Scheduling appointments at one of Dr. Best’s offices,  the primary care physician’s office, the client’s work place, a park, a beach, a local restaurant, or other public venue allows for greater client comfort. Confidentiality is appreciated, respected, and maintained at all venues. 

In consult only cases, Dr. Best does not provide ongoing care and medication management after the case assessments have occurred and the written recommendations have been provided. She will assess each client’s needs and determine recommendations for the next step in each client’s plan. With all of above, clear instructions, list of referrals, and smooth transition to a therapist, life coach, fitness trainer, dietitian, etc. will occur.

On a case by case basis, Dr Best may initiate and complete treatment.
