Office Policies

All patients must provide their insurance card at time of visit and come prepared with their co-payment.

Due to high insurance deductibles, as of January 1, 2016, all new patients must provide the office with a valid credit card to keep on file. The credit card will not be charged unless there is a failure to pay within 60 days. Patients with Medicare are exempt from this policy.

All self-pay patients must be prepared to pay the balance of the visit on the day of the visit.
