  • List of Current Medications
  • Name of Primary Care Physician/Referring Physician

PRICING & FINANCIAL POLICY
We offer procedures in our office based surgery suite.  We are also equipped with state of the art digital radiographs and 3D cast mapping that integrates technologies with the services and procedures we offer.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE CHOICES ON WHO YOU ENTRUST WITH YOUR FOOT CARE.  

WE ARE COMMITTED TO PROVIDING YOU QUALITY PODIATRIC MEDICAL CARE.

    

Most patients are pleasantly surprised to find out how affordable quality medical care can be when you take out the distraction by most third party insurance requirements and regulations.  By keeping things simple, our staff is able to focus on you by giving you the time and delivering the individualized care that our patients need and expect from their doctors.
 
We welcome you and ask that you consider us even though we may not be contracted with your insurance company or if you have no insurance.  We offer a  self-pay option (i.e. cash price) and payment plans are available.  This requires payment on the same day and time that services are rendered. We are able to offer a discounted price on these services because we do not have the costs associated with coding compliance, filing insurance claims, coordinating authorizations or any delays in reiumbursements.
  
All patients will be requested to acknowledge understanding of our financial policy on their initial visit. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made. For your convenience, our office accepts cash, check, debit card, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
  
 
NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES
We welcome all Medicare Beneficiaries to see us; however, we are up front with the rules associated with seeing us and leave the decision to the patient. We voluntarily opted out of Medicare in order to disengage ourselves from unreasonable rules and regulations that interfere with the sanctity of the patient-doctor relationship and the joy of practicing medicine. We are required by the U.S. Government Code of Federal Regulations to sign the private contract between the patient and opted-out physician that simply says that Medicare beneficiaries are responsible for the full amount of the bill.  Our opt-out status does not interfere in any way with the relationships patients may have with other Medicare physicians, health care practitioners, or other medical facilities.
