How and when to pay
The details of fee payment
You do not need to know all the payment details, but I like to give patients as much information as they desire. If you do not want to clutter your mind with all this detail, just wait for me to guide you through the process. Patients should feel as secure as possible.
When do patients pay?
Fees are paid before the appointment if the appointment is in person.
For an Internet appointment, fees are paid after the appointment.
Typically, I send an email bill if there are complex fees. I tell you exactly what you are being charged for: discounts, remedies, interview and handling charges.
Q: How do patients pay?
Patients typically pay through paypal. They do not need an account to use paypal. Paypal charges a fee of about 5 dollars. To avoid that fee, patients also send checks. In Japan, patients often pay through their bank.
Q: What is the process for paying through PayPal?
Currently, you can send money to anyone with an email address.
Here’s how to send money:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Click Send money to a friend at the top of the page.
- Type the email address or mobile number to whom you are sending money, and the amount being sent.
- Click Next.
- Review and confirm the information on the screen and click Send.
Paypal will send the recipient an email to let them know that you sent them money. If they don’t have a PayPal account, we'll explain how to sign up for one. PayPal members must confirm their email address before the money can be credited to their PayPal account.
