Services and Fees

Our practice is based on a fee-for-service philosophy.  Your health care insurance can be used for all services you might require--except your physician visit(s).  The physician's fee is based on a cash (credit card) basis.  We believe our services and fees provide excellent value especailly when the full cost of insurance--deductables, co-pays, etc. are understood.  Our approach keeps physician's services reasonably priced for those with and without insurance.   

We request credit card payment at the time of service.  After your appointment "check out" is completed by documenting the services provided and processing your credit card payment using credit card information on file.  A consultation summary and "super bill" are provided at the end of your Initial Consulation.  The "super bill" includes information needed for you to  submit an insurance claim (level of visit, ICD code, Tax ID etc.).

Follow-up care.  At the end of your Initial Consultation a follow-up strategy is discussed based on the preliminary diagnosis and patient needs.  The two strategy options are Fee for Service or Memberships.
