Why don’t you accept any insurance?
The payor system has become increasingly burdensome to everyone, patients and doctors alike. It is a hardship to get adequate coverage and still have a manageable deductible, co-pay, co-insurance plus the constant monthly payment. For physicians, the authorizations, coding denials, ‘lost’ submissions, and phone calls all require an extensive amount of time and personnel. After years, we have finally said enough. We can offer quality surgical services that you can afford. We are sure of it!
Can I really afford surgery without insurance?
Yes. As in most things, there is a wide range of self-pay pricing. Paying more doesn’t necessarily translate into better care. We have established a network of support physicians, labs, hospitals and surgery centers that are willing to give significant discounts to self-pay patients. We appreciate that you are coming out of pocket to see us and in return, we have kept our prices surprisingly affordable.
How do I decide on a good surgeon?
Meet him or her. Describe your problem and listen to the way he presents a solution. Does he answer all your questions? Is he personally reachable after hours for something important? Is he a part of your post-operative care or is someone else? It never hurts to get more than one opinion and check his references. Surgery is usually a memorable event for most of us. Do a little homework then trust your gut.
How long will I have to wait for an appointment?
Appointments are available usually within the week.
How do I pay for my visit?
Payment is due at the time of your visit unless you have made prior arrangements with the office.
We accept MasterCard, Visa, Check, Cash
Does ‘Board certified’ matter?
Board Certification is a voluntary process, and one that is very different from medical licensure. Obtaining a medical license sets the minimum competency requirements to diagnose and treat patients, it is not specialty specific. Board Certification demonstrates a physician’s exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice. Certification is the best sign that a doctor has the knowledge, experience and skills needed to offer high-quality patient care. By maintaining certification (through recertification) physicians continue to develop their skills and you can be assured that your Board Certified Surgeon is fully up-to-date and well trained.
