PARKING
There’s one parking spot beside the office (on your right when facing the building). You’re welcome to park there if the spot is available.

Other options are: closer to downtown Dartmouth on Ochterloney Street (2 hour parking), behind the clinic across the park (2 hour parking – Prince Albert Road), or across from Sullivan’s Pond near the church.

FEES & INSURANCE COVERAGE
Fees vary depending on the service and length of time of your appointment. Kelly and Jessica at our front desk are happy to explain our fee structure to you when you call.

Most extended medical plans will cover visits with a Registered Psychologist. MSI does not include our services in their coverage. We can often, but not always, direct bill your plan. Please call your insurance before your first appointment, as some plans require a doctor’s note. Insurance plans also vary regarding their coverage amounts and structure (e.g., some pay a percentage).

Fees not covered by insurance are tax-deductible as medical expenses.

We accept payment by VISA, Mastercard, cash and debit.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Please provide 24 hours’ notice (business days) if you can’t make your scheduled appointment. Missed appointments will be billed in full if we do not receive sufficient notice.

In bad weather, we will decide whether to close the clinic and cancel appointments dependent on whether Metro Transit city buses are running and if City Offices are closed. Please call and/or check our Facebook page for updates. It may also be possible to conduct your session via telephone or secure videoconferencing; please discuss with your therapist to arrange.

FORMS
When you make your appointment, Kelly or Jessica at our front desk will tell you which forms we may need. You can download, print and fill out our PDF Forms in advance and bring them with you to your appointment.
