The base fee for services is $185.00/session. Sessions typically last 45 minutes.

Dr. Max can negotiate fees based on a sliding fee scale for clients who do not have insurance and who are financially struggling. The sliding fee scale slides down to $90.00/session based on a family's income and the number of people supported by that income. To request a sliding fee scale, please refer to and fill out the Sliding Fee Scale Application Download SLIDING SCALE FORM on this page. 

Co-pays and self-pay fees are due at the time of service. Dr. Max sends out bills at the beginning of the month and directly bills insurance companies as a service to his clients. See INSURANCE section below for billing details.

Dr. Max charges a Late Cancellation fee of $50.00 for appointments cancelled less than 24 hours in advance. He charges a fee of $60.00 for No-Shows.

If Dr. Max is called to Court for any legal matters, he charges $550.00/hour, including travel time to and from Court and for Court preparation time.

Balances not paid after 90 days are subject to an interest rate of up to 2%/month on the balance. This charge is calculated to the balance that is more than 90 days old at the first of each month.
