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.

Dr. Charney did a fine job, spent an appropriate amount of time, and was an excellent care provider.I despise almost everything about this office except his care. BTW the only reason we saw him, in family medicine, instead of a pediatric MD, is because the MyBSW ap is so poorly designed I ended up making an apt with whomever I could get.

The experience was good, and the provider took the time to listen to the concernsnof my son; however, I do not think that the physical was thorough. My 16 year old son weighed in at 277 and nothing was said about that; further, no blood works were done for a more informed assessment. That said, the bedside manners of bith the PA and the Nurse was good.

He's extremely intuitive and genuinely interested in the health of his patients. It's nice to actually see someone who does not prescribe medications willy-nilly. He's calm and collected and tries to look deeper into his patients' concerns. He'll be honest with you about his concerns and what proper treatment should be. He's an amazing person and I would recommend everyone to him if I could!!
