Office Manager

My office manager will be happy to assist you in in scheduling appointments, determining insurance eligibility or getting information about joining your insurance company's network if we are not already on their panel.

Office Hours
 Times are a'changing

As of August 9, 2016, regular office hours are Tuesday through Thursday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:45 p.m.  Office hours are subject to change without notice due to schedule changes.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my office hours vary significantly, and I am scheduling only a limited number of new clients at this time.  I am offering telemental health (video conferencing) sessions to my existing clients only.  If you are an existing client and would like to schedule an appointment, please contact me by e-mail, fordpurdy@msn.com, or leave a voice message at 352.341.0435.  Masks are required to be worn at all times inside the office.

Due to the pandemic, I have temporarily suspended SAP (DOT) evaluations.     

The length of sessions offered in this office are 45 and 60 minutes.  These times include 5-10 minutes to complete documentation.  These times are based on insurance company guidelines and rate schedules.   Typically the initial session is 50 minutes and the follow up sessions are 45 to 55 minutes in length.  Rates are adjusted based on the actual length of time in session but not adjusted less than 45 minutes without prior arrangements.  In my office, a bell sounds five minutes prior to the end of the session allowing time to wrap up.  


     I regret that I am unable to accept Medicare either as primary or secondary coverage.  If you are a Medicare participant, payment is required at the time services are rendered.  Because I cannot communicate with Medicare directly, you will be responsible for filing a claim for reimbursement with your insurance carriers.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you; however, my attempts to provide this service have been unsuccessful.  Thank you for your understanding.  If you have any questions about our policy, please do not hesitate to ask.
