What to expect
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site.
Please be aware that many insurance companies consider any treatment beyond the physician exam and consultation as a procedure. Some insurance policies that require a copay, include procedures under the copay. Some policies apply these charges to a deductible and co-insurance. Please familiarize yourself with your plan so that you are prepared for any financial obligation you may incur. Copays, deductibles, and coinsurance should be paid at the time service is rendered.
Also, take some time to review our staff page and familarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
