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.

Melania is such a caring person. She was so concerned about my condition & not only asked plenty of questions to get to the heart of what was going on with my health problem. She listened very carefully to what I had to say. She was so thorough in explaining the reasoning behind the possibility of having to go to the emergency room, in case my condition worsened. The explanation definitely eased my stress level. Melania is such a caring, sweet and kind person. She made my doctor visit such a pleasant experience.Bless all our doctor, medical, and nursing staff. They work so hard to make us and keep us well. Specifically pre and post pandemic times. They specifically have been through the trenches for all mankind. Where would humanity be without your profession, sacrifice, and dedication to care for humanity, us. I want to thank you immensely from the bottom of my heart
