Practice Information


 
New Patient Visits
Our office sees primarily three types of patients:
  1. Those that have been told by another doctor that they need surgery.
  2. Those that have had surgery and are still in serious pain.
  3. Those that have been disabled and unable to work for at least 6 weeks.

At the time of the initial examination it is required that any previous diagnostic tests performed including x-ray films, MRI films, CT scan films, etc. are brought to the appointment for the doctor's review.  If these tests are not brought to the appointment it may be necessary to reschedule the appointment.

Payment for Service
If you are uninsured or do not provide evidence of insurance, please be prepared to pay at the time of service. If insured, you will be required to pay any deductible or co-payment at the time of service.

Insurance and Health Plans
For your convenience, we will bill your insurance company and collect payment. Any portion of the fee not covered by your insurance company will be billed to you. You will receive monthly bills including the amount billed to your insurance company, until the balance is paid.
