Insurance and Billing

Our staff is committed to providing you with the best medical care possible. Our office participates in a variety of insurance plans. If you have an insurance plan in which we do not participate, you will be required to sign an out-of-network waiver and our office will be happy to assist you in filing the insurance claim upon request. However, payment in full is expected at the time of service and your insurance company will reimburse you accordingly. Please contact your insurance company to be sure our office is a participating provider in your plan. Qualifications for insurance coverage may differ due to the uniqueness of each procedure.
