Dr. Nikander typically meets with patients [Monday-Friday] at scheduled times approximately between the hours of [8am-5pm].  If you have emailed Dr. Nikander during those days and times, she is likely meeting with scheduled patients.  On days that Dr. Nikander is seeing clients she will check her email often and will reply to the best of her ability.

If your email is regarding time sensitive clinical issues it is best to email Nadine at Nadine@donnanikander.com for an on demand Telehealth appointment. If your email is regarding a chronic issue please self schedule an appointment or email Nadine if you need accommodations. Email is not an appropriate venue for delivering therapy or medication management.  


NOTE: If you receive an auto-reply outside of my usual office hours, then Dr. Nikander may not receive your email until the next scheduled patient day.  


As a professional service provider on the team Dr. Nikander focuses only on clinical care.  If you have any client support related issues or concerns outside of clinical care, such as scheduling, payment or other matters, please see the specific emails below for reference.  

 


Patient Support Team:

Because Dr. Nikander’s availability is by both scheduled and on demand for urgent appointments, please understand that email replies will be brief and may be delayed. Patient Support is available to ensure you have the support you need outside of appointments. Because occasionally the unexpected occurs, Dr. Nikander may have an emergency herself – if you experience a particularly long delay in receiving a reply, feel free to check with patient support to find out if the in-office hours have changed.
