INSURANCE & FINANCIAL INFORMATION
We make every effort to provide financial options and will work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures.
It is important to be aware of your policy’s benefits. We charge the usual and customary fees. You are responsible for payment regardless of the insurance company’s determination of these fees and the coverage of the procedure. If your insurance company does not respond with payment in 45 days from the date of service, you will receive a bill for payment.
If you wish to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please inform our office at least 48 hours beforehand.
If you fail to arrive to a consultation appointment or cancel after the 48-hour timeframe, there will be a $35 charge. If you fail to arrive to a surgery appointment or cancel after the 48-hour timeframe, there will be a $50 charge.
A deposit of your estimated copay will be due at the consultation appointment in order to schedule a surgery.

If they pay more than estimated, you will receive a refund.
