See the table below for a rough idea of when we will contact you to begin the case review process, given my current schedule and new patient flow. Note that this is only an estimate; your actual contact time could be sooner or later depending on numerous factors. For example, it’s likely that at least some of the 600 people on the wait list will drop off because they need to find care sooner than I am able to provide it. On the other hand, I’ll be taking more time off from my practice in the next 12 months than usual because of the book and other commitments. Also note that it generally takes about 2-3 weeks from the time you begin the case review process to when we have our first in-person or phone meeting.
It’s also possible that I may need to take some time off from my practice at some point in the future in order to have time to develop the clinician training program that is so desperately needed to remedy this problem. I’m not yet sure when that might happen (probably no sooner than mid-2014), but it would obviously affect the estimates below. If you are fairly low on the wait list, and you need help soon, it’s probably wise to seek out another clinician.
We’ll update the list periodically to keep it as accurate as possible. Please do not contact the office to ask about this, as my staff will not be able to provide you with any information other than what is published here.
