We also offer cash rates for self-pay patients, please call our office for more information.

Why are some patients taken back to the examination area first, when I have been waiting longer?

Each provider has a unique schedule based on his or her needs. Our providers strive to stay on schedule, but there are occasions where unscheduled, medically urgent patients have to be worked in. We also have a variety of procedures and diagnostic tests, that do not involve the assistance of a provider, so they are scheduled separately.

We collect all co-pays at the time of service, as well as any outstanding balance.
