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.

I feel that Dr. Karen Harrison Is very professional, yet empathetic. She is very approachable, validates my medical concerns and I trust her with my life!During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, I observed her spending her time in the local high school parking lot, in the sun, administering life-saving vaccines to people in our community, as they drove through.Since 1993, I have filled out only a couple of your surveys. I just feel that Dr. Karen Harrison, goes above and beyond her call of duty, and therefore, should be recognized for her outstanding merits!
