If your insurance plan requires you to pay a co-payment, co-insurance, and/or a deductible, you will need to pay at the time of your visit. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Due to new government policies and insurance regulations, we are now required to collect your deductible up front for surgical procedures and a portion of your deductible, per office visit, depending on your insurance plan. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding.

If your insurance is an HMO/managed care plan and you are required to obtain a referral from your primary care physician, the referral must be obtained before you can be seen for an office visit. Please coordinate this with your primary care physician in advance. Appointments will be rescheduled if required referrals are not received in the office by the time of your visit.
