About Specialty Clinic of Austin
SCOA was formed through collaboration between Drs. Patel and Sweet and opened its doors March 2013. The patient experience is unique at SCOA because we utilize a medical model approach to mental health to provide Expert Care. Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation and, from this, an individual treatment plan is formulated. Blood work is analyzed for organic causes that can be causing or contributing to the patient’s presentation. Genetic analysis of liver enzyme variability can be done to help guide medication selection, if appropriate. Electronic medical records and a secure online patient portal are employed, which provide convenient access to important information and rating scales that may be used to track progress of the treatment plan.
Our current accepted insurances are as follows: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield (PPO policies only), Seton, SIMS, and United Healthcare. Please be aware that some of these insurances, although accepted at our clinic, may still have a mental health network that is out-of-network with our clinic.
Do you need to schedule a new patient appointment? Is so, please fill out our (New Patient Intake Form) to ensure a proper fit between our practitioners and you. Please be aware that there are limitations on who can be seen in our office. The new patient intake forms are reviewed by our psychiatrists and may take 1-2 days to process during our busy periods. We ask that you please be patient and do not submit multiple forms as this will only delay our efforts to make appropriate contact with all of those waiting.
Are you scheduled for your first appointment? If you have been accepted as a new patient and are currently scheduled for your first appointment, please register for our Patient Portal to fill out and submit our (1st Appointment Forms) Thank You.
