FEES & INSURANCE
physicians participate in many insurance plans, but not all. Please
check with your insurance carrier to be sure that you understand
what you will be responsible for when you come to our practice.
If your insurance is an HMO, you will need to bring your co-pay
and a correct referral made out to our practice. We expect payment
of your co-pay at the time of service. If your insurance does not
cover office visits please expect to pay for service at the time
of the visit.
fees reflect time spent by the doctor with you as well as time reviewing
your records. They also reflect the specialized nature of the doctor's
training and the individualized studies performed. Our fees are
comparable to other specially trained physicians in the community.
