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.

I have in fact already recommended this provided to several other senior citizens friends. The assistants and exam personnel to prep you for the doctor are excellent!.. As for Dr. Podvar,,, I know he has a hectic schedule, lol, but he makes you feel like you're the only one that she's concerned with right now and he tells you what he's doing and why he is doing. Fantastic person and professional
