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.

I have seen Dr. Popa for several years. She stopped my thyroid medication during summer 2021. I have appreciated her careful monitoring of my clinical status and thyroid levels/related labs since that time. It is reassuring to know that she is "on top" of my condition. I have also appreciated how she communicates with me quickly on the lab portal regarding results. Additionally, I have valued that she encourages questions and answers them in a thorough and non-hurried manner. I am grateful to have her as my endocrinologist. Thank you!
