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.

The doctor is one of the best doctors I saw in my 25 years of staying in States. The way the doctor spoke with me about my case of knee pain, itself is a good medicine and removed half of my pain and doubts on my knee pain. His talking with patience and confidence what he is going to do with my case. His behavior itself removed 98% of my pain . I came out of the clinic with out pain with confidence.Now I am doing 100% good and doing my routine daily two times of exercise as I was doing befomy pain started.

From the beginning of our visit with the front desk people, to the nurse, his assistant, the radio tech, and doctor, we had an amazing visit. Very helpful, friendly, and informative with any questions we had. Also, our ER visit a few nights before was the best ER visit we have ever had.
