Setting Up Your First Appointment

Setting up an appointment with Dr. Alchemy is simple!

  • To set up your first appointment, contact our intake specialist by emailing rhianna@johnalchemymd.com or calling (707) 304-7579. Para Español: (707) 360-0755*
    • In your email or voicemail message, simply state that you would like to book an appointment with Dr. Alchemy, provide your contact information, and the best time to reach you.
  • Prior to your first appointment with Dr. Alchemy, you will have a telephone appointment with our intake specialist, where we will ask you basic information about you and your claim to get you into our system.
  • After we have received authorization from your insurance carrier**, we will contact you to book for your first appointment with Dr. Alchemy.

* We generally respond to emails faster than phone calls. **It can take insurance carriers up to 5 business days to authorize the claim.

Online Or In-person?

For your safety and convenience, we conduct as many appointments as possible via telemedicine: that means talking to the doctor and our staff over video chat rather than coming into the clinic. In workers’ compensation, most visits with your primary doctor involve checking on your symptoms and making changes to your treatment as needed. Often there is no need for physical examination from the doctor. For this reason, we are able to conduct many visits via telemedicine. For telemedicine, Dr. Alchemy uses the HIPAA compliant version of Zoom meeting software.
