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.

Dr Hecht goes above and beyond most specialist physicians. On this visit I noted my optometrist saw something in my eye that could indicate a carotid artery issue. He explained that an absence of symptoms may prevent insurance approval of the scan, but he would check. Before I left that day he entered it into the system, got the scan approved, and told me it was taken care of.
