What to Expect at Dr. Roth’s Office
Generally, a first appointment with Dr. Roth runs about 2 hours and follow-ups are about an hour and a half. At that first visit, Dr. Roth will discuss with you your chief complaints in detail, as well as review a general health history. She will take your pulse Chinese-style, inspect your tongue, palpate the acupoints in the affected areas and possibly use other diagnostic methods, such as lab tests, when appropriate. Nearly all visits include acupuncture and Asian therapeutic bodywork and may also include cupping, heat, herbal and diet recommendations when indicated. If there are any procedures you specifically wish to request or avoid, just let us know, and we will adapt treatment to your comfort.

We are happy to help you determine if your insurance policy covers acupuncture & therapeutic bodywork . If it does, our office will bill your insurance for you. We are out-of-network providers for all companies, but we can often get at least partially reimbursed by policies that have coverage. We do this as a courtesy for our patients, so if at any point the battle to get paid becomes unbearably long and arduous for us, please remember it is still your responsibility to pay your bills for services rendered in our office. Furthermore, if your deductible has not been met or we expect there to be any complication with billing, we may require payment at the time of service, with the possibility of refund if there is insurance reimbursement to the provider.
We only accept cash, checks and travelers’ checks in the office. We do accept a credit card number on your initial paperwork just in case we have prolonged trouble getting paid by your insurance, or for cancellation fees for both office appointments and embryo transfers. We will not bill your credit card without notifying you first of its necessity.
