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.

This was my first actual meeting with her. I think she listens well to what you have to say and tries to help. Waiting to see if her suggested medicines actually help the problem. I do know she said I would be getting 4 prescriptions and my pharmacy only showed 2 called in.

On the first visit, instead of Dr. Furukawa cauterizing the biopsy site on my face, that task was left to an intern who did not cauterize the site sufficiently to keep it from bleeding later, which it did. On the return visit, Dr. Furukawa, herself, did the cauterization and the applied a more adequate dressing to the area. It has not bled since.
