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.

Ms. Karanasos has been my absolute FAVORITE care provider for the last several years! The only reason I checked "Very Good" on most of the questions is because there is no "MOST WONDERFUL" or "FABULOUS"! She is so very thoughtful, she asks questions, she offers suggestions and she genuinally (sp) communicates with her patients. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jennifer, NP is awesome. Her schedule was full but I sent her a message seeing if she can squeeze me into her busy schedule, and the clerical called me within an hour to get me in. It's wonderful to see the teamwork there to get a patient in as soon as they can. She is very polite and professional. Glad she's my pcp
