Health Insurance

We partner with most major PPO insurance carriers. We ask that you have all of your documents whether they are a physical copy or in a digital format at the time of your appointment. In addition, a valid government ID is necessary. By verifying this information we can determine if your insurance coverage is active and the amount of your co-pay; thus allowing us to bill your insurance.

In order to confirm that we are a preferred provider in your network please contact your insurance prior to scheduling your appointment.

  • self-paying patient

    If you are a self-paying patient, an initial consultation fee is $250 and follow-up visits are $150. A virtual medical visit is $150. The pricing of any procedures that are recommended will be discussed with you at the time of your consultation appointment and payment is due at the time of the procedure.

  • Insurance coverage

    Please note, that having a contracted plan and/ or an insurance-covered procedure does not guarantee that your insurance will pay for your entire visit. In addition, all prices for insurance-billed services are set by the insurance companies. The dollar amount insurance companies cover can differ based on the patient's insurance plan. At our practice, we are not able to see details about your insurance contracts, so we advise that you understand your plan thoroughly before seeking medical care.
