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 Gaertner is excellent. He called in two medications for me. The pharmacy was out of stock on the first one and they no longer carry the second one. I called BSW and the ladies who answered were very helpful. I am waiting to see if perhaps another medication can be called in for me. This situation is not Dr Gaertner's fault. He has always been very knowledgeable and professional in all my dealings with him. He is definitely a valuable asset to the BSW team.
