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.

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.

My encounter with Dr. Yari was a very productive one. Not only was it an eye-opener for me but it was also very educational in terms of my personal responsibility in caring for myself. Dr Yari performed some tests and requested some blood tests done plus a scheduled CNS/EMG. I appreciated open discussions on probable causes of my peripheral neuropathy, the central nervous system(what parts affect my present condition). I am looking forward to the tests so I know how involved my neuropathy is and what I can do to survive this. Thank you Dr Yari.

She was very professional and kind. She answered my questions that I had. She gave me literature to help me understand my headaches. She gave me two medication's to help with my headaches, however; one of them is on my record is not working previously. I left with more questions than I had when I first got there. I don't really feel like I made any progress in my migraine journey.
