Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

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

Thank Sir for a great surgery. The last time I had surgery there the doctor actually called himself to check on me. That did not happen this time but I know you are rather busy. Thank you for your service and commitment to take care of your patients.

I had a number of questions regarding my surgery. Dr. Hamilton explained everything and made me feel confident of my recovery. He explained it's a long recovery that will have limitations but surgery was successful as long as nothing moves in my shoulder/arm. This gave me hope and comfort. I'm grateful for a good surgeon and his assisting surgeon.

Dr. Hamilton is a compassionate and caring physician. On all of our visits, even though he is very busy, he has never "rushed through" but taken time to thoroughly evaluate, check progress, answer any questions and clearly explain x-rays and more.
