We participate in most major health insurance plans. Please
check with your insurance provider at the outset of
treatment to ensure that you are covered for your
treatment (and at what level) and to be sure that we are
listed as a provider in your plan. It is the patient's
responsibility to check their insurance plan coverage. To
avoid unpleasant and expensive surprises, we strongly
encourage our patients to carefully research the specific
provisions of their health insurance coverage. It is the
patient's responsibility to know the specific requirements
of their coverage, and to inform our office of all special
requirements. It is important that you bring your insurance
card to every appointment. If you change insurance companies
or change your address, phone number, etc., please contact our
office as soon as possible so we can make the necessary changes to your file.

Furry friends become more than pets when a significant bond with their “person” is established. A specific bread is something to consider when
choosing a furry support friend. The distinction of Emotional Support Animal versus a Service Dog is important to understand. Both designations
require ADA verification. This means that a disability acknowledged by Social Security, e.g. a statement clarifying disability or a medical doctor
statement clarifying you do have a disability.
Training for a support animal can be provided by the owner. This type of training versus a certified service animal trainer can be a better
economic fit. However, this does not necessarily certify that your Furry Friend is a service animal that will exclude you from the guidelines set by
establishments. While questions such as why you require your Furry Friend to accompany you on medical appointments or in the community.
These questions are limited to what service the animal provides. A specific disability question in some instances is not appropriate.
Many organizations have begun to enforce stricter polices regarding the accompaniment of a Furry Friend regardless of presenting certification
of one's service animal.
I do have certified Service/Emotional support dog, her name is Majeek and she is a pure bread Blue Pomeranian. This breed ad is an excellent
choice for either type of support animal as they are very empathic bonding. The following are establishments that will not permit a Service Animal
or Emotional Support animal and do not accept certification provided by the owner that supports the ADA guidelines and our
Therapist/Counselor letter and or/ medical provider.
Providence Medical Group-Neurology: The office manager will instruct the Medical Assistant to inform you future appointments attended in
person with your Furry Friend the appointment will be canceled and you will be charged a late cancel fee.
Vancouver Radiology: This organization will advise upon check in that your scheduled service will require rescheduling to a time and day that
you will not have your Furry Friend in attendance.
Peace Health Medical Group Surgery: The office manager will advise you that he will call security to have you physically removed as they do not
acknowledge, nor will they consider reading any documentation to verify you meet ADA guidelines.
Emotional Support & Service Animals:
