3873 Piedmont Ave is on the west side of the street between Montell and Rio Vista–next door to Piedmont Systems and across the street from Pet Food Express. There is one flight of stairs to get to the second floor. Turn right at the top of the stairs and the office is the 1st door on your left.
Give yourself extra time to find parking–you can usually find unmetered neighborhood street parking, but you may end up several blocks away. There is a lot of metered parking around the office, but if you haven’t left much time to look, the metered lot at 40th and Howe in front of the CVS is a good place to find a spot quickly.

I am in-network with United HealthCare, plans that are managed by Optum, and Federal Employee Plans managed by Blue Shield. I will no longer be in-network with Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, or Healthnet after 2/24/23. I can still bill your insurance or offer a superbill if you have out-of-network benefits. If you want to use your insurance, it is important to submit your insurance information either by email or on the online patient portal (catielowder.acubliss.app) prior to your first visit so we can verify your benefits.
