Appointments: Time and resources have been specifically reserved for your office visit(s) and/or diagnostic test(s). There will be a charge of up to $150.00 if you fail to come in for a scheduled appointment or cancel/reschedule with less than 48 hours notice. This fee is not covered by insurance and is your personal responsibility.

Participating Insurance Plans: We will submit a claim on your behalf for covered charges. You are responsible for deductibles, co-payments, coinsurance, items considered not “medically necessary,” and any other non-covered services as determined by your insurance plan(s) for services rendered. Payment is due upon receipt of our statement.
