FAQ about Psychoeducational Assessments and Therapy
Are your services covered by OHIP?
No, psychological services are not covered by OHIP and are paid by the client. However, often a person's workplace has coverage through their benefit plan (third party insurance). Please check with your benefit plan to review your own coverage. We do accept Visa & MasterCard.
I have never been to a psychologist before, what can I expect?
An initial visit is a chance to meet with Dr. McCabe, review your difficulties, and obtain a brief history and ensure a good fit.. You will be asked some questions about why you are there, what do you want to accomplish, change or manage. After the purpose of the visit has been clarified then you can start on the road to change.
How long is an appointment?
An appointment is 50 minutes long. The additional 10 minutes is used to update notes and prepare for sessions. This help keeps everyone's appointments on time.
I called the office but I only got the answering machine. When will you call me back?
Sorry to have missed your call. We will call you back promptly, usually the same business day. If you called after 4:00 or on the weekend, your call will be returned the next business day. The office is open for treatment on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
I am more comfortable with email. Can I email instead of calling?
Certainly, you can email our Office Manager, Cheryl, at email@example.com.
