Dr.Scott with Representative Martin

With Representative Martin — Dr. Scott has been recognized as the Psychologist of the Day five times since 2007.


Depending on your situation, you may or may not want to use your insurance.  The one benefit of using your insurance is that each therapy session will cost you less money.  The co-payment for many insurance companies is between $35 and $50, which is less than the full fee that you would pay without insurance.

You should know, however, that there are significant disadvantages to using insurance.  The first is that it reduces the amount of privacy to which you are entitled.  Insurance companies require information about you and the reasons you are receiving treatment before they are willing to pay for services. 

Second, insurance companies often require that you receive a diagnosis.  Most people who seek treatment with Dr. Scott are healthy, well-functioning individuals who want to improve their life.  Having a formal diagnosis documented on your medical record may not be in your best interest.

Third, insurance companies usually limit the type, frequency, and number of sessions to which a person is entitled.  Dr. Scott believes that these are decisions that are best left to doctor and patient.
