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. Baylor Scott & White Health does not manage the insurances accepted for this doctor. Please contact the office directly to confirm coverage.

I know Dr. Surku since June 2019, and he is probably the most compassionate and empathetic physician I have ever been cared for while also being amazingly good at what he does. He can see us as a whole, not just as one illness in one area, which really helped me, and which is a rare thing among specialists

Dr. Sukur is one if not the best one of the care provider that I have visited in a long time. He sits with the patient and design with the patient a plan to follow to recovery. He does not only prescribe to treat a condition but investigate what is causing it. Very thoroughly. I'm very pleased.

Dr. Surkunalignam not only reviews and discussed in detail my current health & test results but went on to ask sound, probing questions on my physical and mental health; recommending additional tests and fellow physicians for assistance.
