Payment And Insurance Referrals Because of the complexity of some insurance plans,
we will work with you to determine as closely as possible what your actual cost will be so
you don't overpay and don't get any surprises. We ask that you submit co-payments and other non-covered charges when you arrive for your appointment. Our staff will file all insurance claims for you and will direct the insurance company to make any reimbursements payable directly to you for services for which you have already paid. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

We now also accept CareCredit. You can apply online at www.carecredit.com or by calling 1-800-365-8295

Referrals - Referrals from your primary care physician that may be required by your insurance company are your responsibility. We will be happy to assist you in the process and verify that the proper paperwork has been submitted. You will usually need to contact your primary physician at least one week prior to your visit. Referrals are typically required for follow-up visits as well.
