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. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

He made me feel like I was in good hands. I trusted him and I felt zero pain. He asked about services I was getting and if I needed something else. He made me feel like I was not just a "number" put a person.

I have no way of knowing if he is the 'best' or 'worst' provider. He seemed to be very competent and interested in helping me. He ordered Xrays, wrote a prescription, referred me to pain management, and physical therapy. I do not know if I would refer family and friends to this office since I do not yet know how effective his recommendations will be.

The provider was very patient and I say this because as he would explain to me I would excuse myself and ask a question in the middle of him explaining just because I tend to forget quickly. I appreciate the time that he gave me. He seemed very kind also.
