We participate with major insurance companies, and our fees are based on appointment categories, procedures and time spent with a practitioner. Please contact your insurance company for verification of coverage and a complete explanation of benefits. We are happy to discuss expense and a payment plan with you at your appointment, but cannot negotiate with insurance companies for you. We recommend checking with your insurance company before you come in so that you are fully apprised of what is and what isn’t covered by your insurance policy.
Payment is due at the time of appointment. Co-Payment and Insurance Deductable Payments are due at the time of service. (click here for office policies)
