Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

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.

Dr. Sheikh is very conscientious about the care that is being provided. She is very personable. I receive home calls from her regularly if she deems something is wrong, that make me feel that she is really intuned to my problem and that she really care.

She was very friendly, professional, thorough, and intelligent. Being that this was my very first appointment with her, I am giving her the benefit of the doubt. We will see over time how my experiences work out. So for her being the best hematologist/oncologist I've ever had-it's too early to say.
