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.

Dr Mendelow, Was the best doctor I have seen at BSW. She took care and listened. She was very thorough in her exam. She performed tests which should be performed at my physical, yet doctors say they don't need to. Testicular exam, prostate and urine test are tests that should be checked as noted by physical exam guidelines, yet family doc says there Is need and will not perform. Dr M is a credit to not only the urology profession, but medical community. She helped dispel the misinformation I received from other urologists. Thanks Dr M
