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.

Most of all he listened to me, never dismissed my feelings. He thought the pains I was having could possibly be a muscle pull. But he put me at ease, went through all the tests, and all was good, I never had the pain after the intitial visit/tests. He put me at ease.
