How can i become a patient?
The first step is to complete a brief phone intake so we can discuss whether one of our providers may be a good fit and answer any questions you might have. If your call is not answered directly, leave a message including your name, phone number, and several good times to reach you. You can also email us with some good times to reach you and the best number to use. We are often unable to answer calls directly during business hours. You can expect to receive a return call or email from one of our clinicians within 1-3 business days.
Do you Take My Insurance?
Providers at the Anxiety & OCD Treatment Center of Philadelphia are not on any insurance panels. However, AOTCP clinicians can provide clients with a receipt for each session that can be submitted to one’s insurance company. Patients considering treatment with the AOTCP are encouraged to contact their insurance company and ask (1) what coverage they have for out-of-network providers, (2) whether there are any limits on the number of visits per calendar year, and (3) how much the company will reimburse per session. It is your responsibility to understand your insurance coverage.

what about parking?
There is a parking garage attached to the building. The entrance is to the right of Joe’s Cafe. Rates currently range from $17 to $26 depending upon the time of day you are parking. Self-parking spaces sometimes run out mid-day. There is usually Valet parking on the second floor of the garage (on your way out) for no additional fee.
Metered street parking is available, but difficult to find, particularly on Walnut Street. Walk south (Spruce, Pine, Lombard) a few blocks for slightly better availability. Read signs carefully. Most spaces have a 2 hour limit.
