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.

It's very important to me to feel comfortable with a care provider. And I do feel comfortable with Dr. Harrison. She listens to my concerns and responds accordingly. Even if she makes a recommendation, and I'm not in agreement and would like to pursue another option, she doesn't dismiss my decision with the I'm the Doctor attitude. I really appreciate that.
