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.

Talena Walker has been excellent. She always showed true concern for my well being. I hate that she is relocating clinics and I now have to find a new caregiver. She will be an excellent asset to her new assignment.I wish there were more providers like her. In my years at S&W, I have only found 2 providers that have been a true patient advocate and she was one of them. The other provider I had left the institution. I hope to find a new provider that will give me the time and importance during my visits like Talena Walker. She was a provider I strived to please and comply which is saying alot I think it is because she earned my respect which providers at S&W don't even attempt too. The other providers that I have seen have a "get'em in and out" type of attitude, and I want to find one that will be concerned for my care and will take time to talk out my health concerns. Talena Walker was a wonderful provider that listened, discussed and gave you a plan of action. She didn't just give orders, she was very patient and said she knew changes take time and gave me mini goals to accomplish. She was truly caring of her patients. I can't say enough good things about her, I felt that under her care my physical and mental health were at their best in years.
