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.

My first visit as I was referred by my PT manager. Very good experience with Dr. Fox explaining surgery and recovery. Recommendations for additional test is completed but unsure when I can revisit Dr. Fox to go over options with my husband before scheduling surgery according to receptionist as no appointments available in near future. I messaged the doctor, PA says office will call me. I really want an opportunity to discuss this surgery with surgeon and my spouse. It's a big surgery which I need some reassurance from doctor and staff that they will be there to help me through it all.

Dr. Fox always takes his time and explains everything related to my care. Back surgery is scary, but he makes it possible to be much less scared. Dr. Fox is very caring and personable. I have followed him from his other location, and since he has worked on my back before I know that he will have my best interest and take care of me.
