If you have any questions regarding your medication protocol or if you need your medication refilled please feel free to call us during our regular office hours or contact your pharmacy and they will call us.

Insurance

Our practice participates with numerous insurance companies. For patients who are beneficiaries of one of these insurance companies, our billing office will submit a claim for services rendered. All necessary insurance information, including special forms, must be completed by the patient.

It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amounts, co-insurance or any other balance not paid by your insurance company.

If a patient has insurance in which we do not participate, our office is happy to file a claim upon request; however, the patient will be responsible for any out of network expenses that may incur.
