Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice.

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. Banch took time to listen to my concerns. He then explained what was going on and answered all questions my husband and I had. He gave us detailed information I wish we had 3 months ago when my issues was first found. We left this appointment feeling we finally had the information we needed to be able to make an informed decision on what we wanted to do next. We would have made different decisions on my care had we had the information that Dr Banch gave us on our first visit with him. It took over 2months to get an appointment with him.He is amazing.
