Dr. Gaffney wrote that he is happy to open his panel for medical students, residents, and/or faculty members as needed. Medical students, residents, and/or faculty members are welcome to phone and/or email him with personal mental health care issues. Also, he is willing to be flexible in arranging appointments so as to take into account responsibilities as a medical professional. He is willing to arrange an alternate payment agreement with medical students, residents, and/or faculty members if necessary. His practice is limited to individual psychotherapy and he does not offer medication management of psychiatric problems.
Patients are given a properly coded super bill to submit to their insurance for reimbursement. However, payment is requested at the time of each visit.
