Acupuncture Office Policies and Guidelines

Renée S. Melfi, M.D., P.C. acupuncture practice does not accept insurance. Full payment is required at the time of service. We will, upon request, provide you with a superbill, which you may then submit to your insurance company.

Dr. Melfi is a triple-boarded medical sub-specialist with 15 years of higher education and medical training in addition to her certification in Medical Acupuncture. As such, our prices may be higher than those of a Licensed Acupuncturist.
