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.

We only met for a few minutes, but I appreciate that he wanted more current blood work to verify the diagnosis I had been given previously. He also cut through any "medical talk," and gave us a clear and concise explanation of the possibilities.

From the first meeting to now, Dr. T has been a caring doctor like the one I grew up with. Even though his time is limited because of the number patients a doctor has to see has increased from what that number was 20 or 30+ years ago. Dr. T makes the most of that time. He asks all the right questions and more importantly he actually listens to my answers. Technology has improved but a lot of doctors haven't. Dr. T has because he hasn't forgotten one very important thing about doctor patient interactions. Speaking to and listening to your patients. Actually listening to them. The more info from a patient the better a doctor is able to determine what tests needs to be done and which are a waste of medical resources and unnecessary financial billing to the patient. He's a doctor I can trust 100% with my care.
