Our Patient's Bill of Rights
As patient and physician, ours is more than a relationship, it's a partnership. To ensure that we have lived by these principles:

  • A patient has the right to know what his or her illness is and 
    what trouble it is likely to cause.
 • A patient has a right to know our qualifications and experiences.
 • A patient has the right to consult with other doctors without us 
   being insulted or angry that he/she wants another opinion.
 • A patient has the right to understand our fees.

 • We will spend a patient's money wisely as possible. We will
   look for and recommend the most cost effective way of solving
   our patient's problems.

  • We will not recommend surgery unless the patient needs help
    that only surgery can provide.
 • If a patient feels that we have not provided them with our best
   efforts, please make this known.
 • We cannot guarantee results of treatment, but we can
   guarantee you our best efforts to treat you honestly and fairly.
 • If a patient has financial problems, our office is committed to
   making arrangements so proper, necessary care is always
   provided.

Please read our Notice of Privacy Practices It describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information. Your privacy is important to us, so please review the notice carefully.

 

Office Policies Regarding Managed Care Insurance Plans
We understand that the many changes in the health care system have made it quite confusing for our patients. The following are guidelines that have been established by the insurance companies to allow reimbursement for services that we provide:

 • You are responsible for obtaining and bringing referrals at the
    time service is rendered.
 • Be aware that referrals may be for one visit or more. This is 
    clearly indicated on the referral form.
 • Keep in mind that a referral may limit treatment that can be
    provided.
 • Referrals do expire. Most are good for either sixty or ninety
   days. This is also indicated on the referral form.

 • A consultation report will be sent to your primary care physician after the
   first visit and follow-up reports will be provided as necessary.
 • You are responsible for your co-pay at the time treatment is rendered.
 • If you do not have a referral for a visit, you are responsible for full payment.
 • Primary care physicians have indicated that they cannot be called for a
   referral when you are already in our office. Referrals must be obtained
   before your visit to our office. Primary care physicians often need several
   days to provide you with a referral.

We are always available to help you with any questions regarding your insurance and treatment in our office. If you have a specific question about billing for services that were provided, please call our offices directly. Thank you.
