SUPPLEMENTS AND HOLIDAY OFFICE UPDATE:

Traci will be out of the office from 7/2 - 7/12, and she will return on Monday 7/15. 

In order to ensure a normal delivery, please place your supplement orders by Monday 7/1. Refill requests for office pick-ups and shipments will be very limited from 7/2 - 7/12. Upon Traci's return, refills will be fulfilled in the order in which they were received so delays in shipping and billing should be expected. 

The office will also be CLOSED on 7/4 and 7/5. We will RETURN on Monday 7/8

Responses to portal messages will be delayed or not be viewed until the office returns. If there is an emergency, please contact 911 or your local primary care provider. Thank you for understanding.

Annual Comprehensive Administration Plan (ACAP) Fee:

Prescribing medications has taken increasing time on Dr. O'Hara's part in the last few years. Because of this, for all returning patients for whom she is prescribing pharmaceutical medications (as well as lab orders not completed during the time of consults or in preparation for a consult), she will need to charge an Annual Comprehensive Administrative Plan (ACAP) fee of $100 per family. This will be charged in June of each year based on prescriptions required of Dr. O'Hara in the previous year. Of course, you can always ask your primary practitioner to prescribe these medications and provide these lab orders. Dr. O'Hara is happy to discuss this with you, your primary provider or to mentor your primary provider through a transition to do this if you do not want to incur this annual charge in the future. Thanks for your understanding. 

- Dr. O'Hara
