Clinical Matters

Private patients: I do NOT currently see private patients. Ordinarily I am only able to see patients who already have a primary care provider/primary physician at UCLA.

Insurance Matters: Californians can select UCLA Health as their healthcare provider through Anthem Blue Cross EPO (Pathway-Tiered). This includes the individual plans Bronze EPO, Silver EPO, Gold EPO and Platinum EPO. Individuals can call Anthem Blue Cross at (866) 773-0694 for more information about these plans.

UCLA Health has created a webpage with additional information and some guidance on signing up under CoveredCalifornia: You can also speak with representatives at UCLA’s Physician Referral Service at (877) 825-2212.

Scheduling: If you are a current or prospective patient with scheduling concerns, please contact the clinic where you see me. I am not able to reschedule you myself. Last-minute cancellations or rescheduling are subject to the cancellation policy of the clinic in question.

Emergencies: In case of a medical or psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Email and voicemail communications may be delayed and are not advised for urgent or emergent matters.

Routine messages & refills: For routine clinical matters (such as medication refills), please leave a voicemail on my office phone with your name, date of birth, the number of your pharmacy, and the medication in question: 310-794-8296.

Please be aware that Schedule II medications such as stimulants (Ritalin/Concerta/methylphenidate, Adderall, & Vyvanse) require a security prescription script and cannot be called in. You will need to pick up a hard-copy prescription at the clinic where I see you. I am not able to mail or fax these prescriptions. Please plan your refills accordingly.

Voicemail: If you want me to call you back, please tell me whether I can leave a message on your voicemail.

Urgent messages: For urgent matters that cannot wait until the next business day, please have me paged through the UCLA Page Operator: 310-825-6301.

Coordination of care: If you are a current or former patient and you wish me to speak with your other healthcare providers, or you are a current provider for one of my patients and you wish to discuss coordination of care, please fax me a signed Authorization for Release of Information at 424-652-2213. Two versions are needed: one authorizing me to release information to your other providers, and one authorizing them to release information to me.

UCLA Forms:
