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.

After 6 years of countless medical providers, procedures, tests, pills this was going to be my last attempt at answers before I gave up. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Duren. He listened to me and moved forward with a plan based off my words and his medical knowledge. This visit meant more than I can put into words. To leave and feel a glimmer of hope that's been gone for quite sometime. I am a difficult case and I don't know if this will lead to a true medical diagnosis or fix, but I have hope again solely based off this visit with Dr. Duren.
