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.

The doctor sees my husband and I at the same time and that is so helpful for her and for us to hear her recommendations for a needed procedure, etc. When the resident first examined me she was very through and I could tell she had studied my records from previous visits. She circled a suspicious spot on my right shoulder and brought it to Dr. Patkt when she came in. Then she looked over my entire body from head to toe and asked lots of questions! She answered every question I had and decided to take a sample of a spot to have it tested. Dr. Park is Iiwonderful dermatologist!
