Insurance listings are subject to change 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.

Very pleasant, took her time and explained what she was doing. She did a very thorough series of test to see if there any conditions that may need further testing. She felt my condition is just time needed to heal from my back surgery. Thank you for the professionalism that your employees exhibit.

I scheduled during COVID so receptionist was working from home. She was so professional yet down to earth. Great service. Checkin receptionist seemed swamped with phone call and my asking to fill out new patient paperwork. App checkin new patient form was long and didn't give me space to explain why I was being seen. Just wanted family history of illnesses. Dr. Yari is amazing. She listened and heard my concerns. I definitely felt she cared about my symptoms and is serious in finding answers. Phlebotomist was pleasant and gentle. Have already recommended your office to a friend with seizures looking for new neurologist. Thank you!
