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 amount of time taken to talk to me and explain what is going on was a first for me. Instead of just telling me what medication is going to be prescribed he told me why. Also explained my health issues not just told me. Refreshing visit. I don't like doctor appointments but because he was straight forward with explaining I would go back as needed without hesitations.

Leighton Carl is a great provider. He is positive. He is Christian. He models his belief, yet is never inappropriate or pushy and he is open to others beliefs and accepting. He gives easy to understand instructions and provides written info appropriate to his guidance. He is helpful and understanding and not authoritarian. He knows my health history and does not start from scratch or ask repetitive questions. I enjoy pictures of him and his family in the office. I am comfortable around him and trust his judgement
