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.

Dr. Fernandez changed my life and all because he listened to me and took my concerns seriously. I've been dealing with these issues since I had my first baby in 1992. I've been told over and over again that it's just some thing that I have to live with as a result of having four very large babies. Dr. Fernandez went into immediate action to correct these deficiencies. I am so grateful for this amazing doctor who is kind, caring, and very knowledgeable. I cannot even put into words how much this one simple surgery completely changed my daily life.
