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.

Dr. Desai and her nursing assistants are always wonderful. They have made me feel like a person and not just someone with a "problem" in the past few years I've had regular appointments with them. It's so important to feel comfortable with your doctor so that you can find the correct path to navigate the mental and and physical issues we face daily. I am so thankful for Dr. Desai and her team, that's to include the lovely ladies at the check-in counter. Thank you so much for all you do! And for making me feel like I have a voice when it comes to my health. <3
