About

University Elite

Dedicated to helping patients “learn the why“ which is causing their problems, and then to diagnose effective methods of changing thoughts, behaviors, and patterns, to generate the desired outcomes in your life.

University Elite is a home where best doctors and motivated patients meet without the impediments of traditional care.  Together the doctor and patient learn the cause of the patient’s difficulties, make a plan that addresses both symptom relief and addresses the cause.  Our goal is for each patient to become their best self and reach their true potential. 

Unlike many practices, we are so confident in our care that we transparently list the details of our operation in this section.


Services University Elite Offers

Services and fees


Rates
• Our psychiatrists are $300/hour for psychotherapy (14 years+) and psychiatric (10 years+) services
• Our psychologists are $150/hour for psychotherapy only services
• One-hour sessions consist of 50 minutes with the patient, and 10 minutes of administrative duties such as calling in prescriptions & filing paperwork.

New patients
New patients usually require between 1-3 intake evaluation/treatment planning sessions.  All evaluation/treatment planning sessions are 50 minutes long and are referred to as an “hour.” (The remaining 10 minutes are used for administrative requirements (completing paperwork, calling in your meds, filling out the session receipt, etc.)  

Follow up patients
Ongoing care for psychotherapy only or psychotherapy with medication management sessions will require “hour” long follow up sessions.  Appointments that are strictly medication management will be 20-25 minute appointments and are referred to as a “half hour.”   

Cancellation Policies
Note that appointments can only be cancelled or rescheduled with more than 24-hour notice.  Failure to provide 24-hour notice will result in that slot being unavailable for another patient.  Therefore, you will be charged the full fee for the appointment time.

Out of appointment requests
Phone calls and paperwork in excess of those routinely required as part of evaluation and treatment will be charged in 15 minute increments pro-rated at the doctor’s rate.  ($300/ hour for a psychiatrist and $150/ hour for a psychologist.)  

Insurance
University Elite does not accept insurance, but can provide you with a receipt or “super bill” that you may submit to your insurance company in an attempt to obtain reimbursement for “out-of-network” services.

Please contact your insurance company ahead of time to determine whether or not you have out-of-network benefits and to learn what your reimbursement rate will be.   

Prescription drug benefit
If your insurance has a prescription drug benefit, prescriptions written by University Elite Physicians will typically be covered by insurance. 

If you don’t have insurance, there are many affordable medication options to choose from. Just discuss this with your physician. 

Medication Refills
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adequate medication supplies. In the rare case where active patients don’t have enough refills between appointments, we can generally call in a sufficient supply to last until your next appointment. 

Note that early refills will not be given for stimulants or benzodiazapines. 

Pain medications
Be aware that University Elite physicians do not manage acute or chronic pain or prescribe maintenance medications for opiate use disorder.  This includes suboxone, buprenorphine, methadone, oxycontin, etc. Moreover, none of the medications are distributed and samples are not available at any clinic locations.

Insurance Policy


Please note that to provide personalized service and full confidentiality, University Elite does not contract with any insurance providers. All services are paid for in full by the client when reserving each session.

If requested, your doctor will be happy to provide you with a reimbursement form or “superbill” which you can present to your insurance provider in order to seek partial reimbursement for psychiatric or psychotherapeutic services rendered.

If you plan to use insurance benefits, it is recommended that you check with your insurance provider prior to your first appointment to understand the full details of your out-of-network mental health benefits. University Elite Doctors are considered “out-of-network” providers for insurance plans. These plans vary widely and typically reimburse patients anywhere from 25% to 90% of the total cost of each session. You may want to ask your insurance carrier to what extent they reimburse for psychiatric services by an out-of-network doctor.






Achievments & awards

Dr Watson’s biography


  • Bio

In addition to being a proven leader in military combat, graduating from medical school, completing a four year general psychiatry residency and passing the psychiatry and neurology specialty board exam, Dr. Watson dedicated thousands of additional hours of study and training to become one of the few psychiatrists that has the extra skills/knowledge necessary to be a recognized expert in neurology, psychotherapy, forensic psychiatry, PTSD and more.  Additionally, he is a flight surgeon. 

This extra training and experience led to Dr. Watson being requested as an author of a textbook chapter on psychotherapy, producing medical journal articles/studies, a professor, an expert evaluator for legal proceedings and he is a highly sought out keynote speaker for topics that include: PTSD, neurobiology of psychotherapy, depression & anxiety, suicide, leadership and much more.  

The best part of Dr. Watson’s talent is that he uses this expertise and his natural teaching ability to help make complex and difficult topics understandable. He believes that psychiatric care is most successful when the doctor applies their knowledge to help the patient understand “the why” and becomes an equal partner in treatment decisions.

Dr. Watson felt that University Elite was the answer to giving like-minded experts and patients a home where they (not insurance) would be the sole decision-makers in the care.  University Elite is a place where experts are given the necessary time and freedom to utilize their experience, expertise and talents to provide the patients elite psychoeducation and exceptional care.
