Patients are seen by appointment only. Although the office is open at the times listed above, individual providers are not in the office every day. Please call our office to schedule an appointment and feel free to request the provider of your choice. In the event that you are unable to keep your appointment, we do require at least a 24-hour notice for all cancellations and reschedules. Please note that a fee will be charged for missed appointments. Patients will receive an automated reminder call 2 days before their appointment.
Insurance and Billing
We do accept most insurance plans and file primary and secondary claims for our patients. Please make sure that you provide our office with your most up-to-date insurance information or balances will be transferred to patient responsibility. Copays are expected at the time services are rendered. Upon claims processing, all other portions applied to patient responsibility will be billed to patients via monthly statements.
Fees for services rendered are based on the severity, complexity, and nature of the problem as well as time involved in treatment. It is your responsibility to understand and comply with your health plan's determination of benefits. Please note that our office utilizes outside pathologists and labs. You will receive a separate bill from the pathologist or lab for these services. If you have questions about the coverage of your individual health plan, please contact your insurance carrier.
Noncovered and Cosmetic Services
Please be aware that the services provided by our office may not be covered or considered medically necessary under your insurance policy. Any care that is not paid for or denied by your insurance coverage will be your responsibility. Please note that we do not file insurance claims for cosmetic services, and those must be paid for at the time those services are rendered.
Prescriptions and refills are issued during office hours only and will be called into your pharmacy within 24 – 48 hours of request. Please note that our providers do not have access to your medical records during the evenings and weekends, and therefore will not refill prescriptions while on call. Make sure that you allow enough time to have your medication refilled by calling in advance. For efficiency, we recommend that you contact your pharmacy for prescription refills and allow them to contact us directly.
