Tips

Carefully note your appointment location (north office or south office)

  • Complete the secure online portion of your medical history at patient forms.
  • Dress comfortably (loose fitting clothing/shorts/athletic pants) to allow for the physical exam portion of your visit
  • We often need to obtain new or additional x-rays during your visit if your disc will not import or if x-rays are too old, low quality, or missing views.
  • All insurance companies, including medicare, require us to collect co-pays at the time of service. Our office accepts cash, check, and major credit cards.

Failure to bring the imaging on a disc/CD and reports/records to this appointment will result in the postponement of your appointment so as to enhance your time in our office and to ensure your needs are met.

Insurance

We accept most major insurances. Because each plan is different and is constantly updating providers’ participation status, please check with your particular plan to make sure we are currently participating in your network. We do not specialize in workman’s compensation or third party/liability billing.

Payments

All insurance companies, including medicare, require us to collect co-pays at the time of service. We accept cash, check, money order, Visa, Discover, American Express, and MasterCard. Refunds are sent routinely in the event that your co-pay is overpaid. After your insurance claim has processed, you will be billed for the balance of your portion as detailed on the Explanation of Benefits provided by your insurance company.
