We schedule patients for longer appointments. By design, the doctor sees fewer patients per day and has the time to focus on each patient’s treatment needs.
Patients are seen as frequently as needed. We are able to respond promptly to any medical issues that arise. Your call will be answered immediately and an appointment time, if needed, will be arranged without any delay.
Out of network
We will provide you with receipts that you can submit to insurance for reimbursement in case you have out-of-network benefits. Your insurance will still cover most of prescribed medications. If required, we will obtain insurance authorizations on your behalf.
No insurance dictates
The doctor is not bound by contractual relations with insurance providers, which often impose treatment limits. You will receive highly specialized professional care that is right for your needs.
