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.

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.Tunnell was surprisingly very approachable, kind and friendly. So many times speciality doctors can be aloof and hard to approach. He was not that way at all. I really liked him right off the bat and knew I could work with him. He was a good listener and explained everything very well. I am very pleased.

That my results were sent to me but not explained. I don't know what any of these terms mean. His assistant stated he went over them with me at the time of my visit . But he didn't. He only stated the EKG looks good that is it explaining. And I was told information was being sent to give me clearance for surgery it was not . I had to send a reminder message.
