OFFICE VISITS & SURGICAL CARE:   Based on insurance benefits, payment is expected at the time of service.  This includes charges for X-rays and other diagnostic studies.  Alternate arrangement must be made in advance.  If you do not have Insurance coverage payment is due in full at time of service.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:  For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover.  Financing is available through Care Credit.  

INSURANCE:  Your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurer; we are not a party to that contract.  While we will gladly assist you in recovering maximum benefits from your plan, you are ultimately responsible for your account with our office, in lieu of any third party charges.

As a courtesy to our patients, we will gladly offer our assistance in your initial claim filing at no charge. 

If after a three (3) month period your PPO has not paid, the patient will be automatically responsible for payment of the entire balance.

Accounts with a balance over 90 days will be turned over to a collection agency.  Collection Agency fees will be the responsibility of the Account holder.
