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. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Popa is phenomenal. Her communication with her subordinates sometimes doesn't correctly translate and it impacts me negatively when I need my medications. Because her office staff sometimes misinterprets her requests, I have often been on the short end of the stick regarding the incorrect writing of very important prescriptions.

Dr. Popa has been seeing me for about 15 or more years. She has always been very pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, and isn't afraid to tell me she isn't familiar with something. She asks questions in a caring way, and she never appears rushed with my appointment. She schedules very well. I believe in all these years, she was only running 15+ mins behind once and SHE APOLOGIZED! Amazingly considerate.
