Do you accept insurance?
Dr. Elbers is not a participating provider with any insurance panel. Payment is due at time of service. Upon request, patients will be provided with a detailed statement, or “super-bill”, which can be directly submitted to insurance, with payments being reimbursed directly to you.
What can I expect from a Neurology Consultation
A new patient Neurology Consultation is 80-minutes long. During the first half of medical visit we will discuss the presenting symptoms, medical history, review prior testing, and complete a physical examination. During the second half of the visit, we will thoroughly discuss my assessment of the underlying cause of the symptoms, answer any questions that arise, and create a plan that is unique to each patient to address the underlying cause, rather than just improving symptoms.
What additional treatments or interventions do you offer?
The treatments I offer all have a neurobiological basis, and may be considered forms of neuropsychotherapy.
How long does it take to feel better?
This varies from person to person. Some people notice improvement in their symptoms after the first visit. However, since my approach is to address the underlying cause of the symptoms which often involves regulating and rewiring the nervous system, symptom-resolution may take time and effort on the part of the patient.
