Policies & Procedures
No On Call Coverage
Dr Zigun's practice is a consultation service whether for one evaluation, for psychotherapy or for medication management.
No Covering Psychiatrist
Dr. Zigun does NOT work with a covering psychiatrist. Therefore, should a patient have an urgent or emergent need and Dr. Zigun is not available - they agree to seek care with a primary care physician or hospital emergency room or call 911.
While this approach works for many patients - it is not appropriate for others.
If you or Dr. Zigun feel this would not be appropriate - he will assist you with identifying another psychiatrist from whom you may seek treatment.
