We will file claims to your insurance company and do all that we can to assist you. It is important that you understand the benefits and the requirements of your policy. Some insurance companies require pre­authorization by the physician before surgery. Please review the requirements of your policy and verify that this process has been completed.
You are responsible for understanding your benefits, the terms of your policy and are responsible for the balance of your account.

You can expect a statement from us after we have heard from your insurance company. Payment in full is required within 30 days. For your convenience, we accept Care Credit (Please visit to apply for an account), VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

This is my third visit to your facility - twice for my son (which includes this time) and once for my husband.

My son who is 15 was very well taking care of - everyone helps put us at ease by their attention, friendliness, and excellent care."

What Our Patients Say

"Even though I went in alone for this procedure and was nervous, they made me feel like I wasn?t so alone and someone was close by every step of the way. This is by far the best staff I have ever encountered at a medical facility. Everyone worked well together for the comfort and care of the patients, everyone was helpful and focused on the patient?s care. They were all upbeat and very good at their roles. I am thoroughly impressed, and while I would never elect to have surgery, this is the place I would go." 

What Our Patients Say

"The desk receptionist was pleasant and courteous. My husband approached while I was checking in and she acknowledged him to make sure he was with me.
