Financial Policy

We make every effort to keep down the cost of medical care. All co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles and payments for non-covered services are to be paid at the time the service is rendered. All cosmetic consults are required to be paid in full at the time they are performed. Cosmetic services are to be paid prior to the procedures. Please bring your insurance card with you to each appointment. Please notify our staff of any insurance change before being seen and remember that your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company. If you do not bring your insurance card, you will be responsible for charges at the time of the visit. If your insurance policy requires a referral to be seen, it is your responsibility to ensure that the referral has been received by our office. If the referral is not received by the time of your appointment, you may reschedule or sign a waiver and pay for the services. If you have any questions please feel free to ask any staff member.
