Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

She provided excellent, timely, compassionate care. I could not ask for a better provider. She also LISTENS to the patient to understand the dynamics of their body, because they know their bodies best. I will drive extra miles to be provided care by Heather. She makes BSWH a great place to receive care.

She was very nice and understanding through the entire process. She listened to me explains what I wanted (to get a new birth control) and didn't make me feel like I was less because I didn't know much about it. She also listened to what I wanted from it, and gave me the best option. I have a lot of anxiety in doctors visits, but she was very helpful.
