How do I make an appointment?

To set up an appointment, please call (646) 450 6337 or email drnissenson@gmail.com.  

How often do I come to therapy?

Most people attend therapy once a week. The initial session includes a psychiatric evaluation, a description of therapy and time for questions. This evaluation lasts 1 hour. All follow-up sessions are 45 minutes. Skype sessions are also available in certain circumstances. 

How long does treatment last?

Therapy generally lasts between six months to a year but length may vary depending on the complexity of the issues with which a client presents. 

Do you accept insurance?

I am not an in-network provider on an insurance plan.  Most clients use their out-of-network benefits to receive some reimbursement.   You are responsible for payment at each visit and you are provided with a receipt to be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement.  Each bill receipt includes the necessary information to submit claims to your insurance company.

How do I find out how much my insurance company will reimburse me for your service?

Please call the telephone number on the back of your insurance card and ask what your out-of-network mental health benefits are.  The CPT (procedure) code for the initial 60 minute evaluation is 90791 and the CPT code for the 45 minute follow-up sessions are 90834.  Ask if you have a deductible, and if so, how much.
