Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

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.

I came into the ER by ambulance after a fall. I did not know any orthopedic physicians and was very concerned that one would be assigned that was not all that great. During transport, I prayed God would have just the right people there for me. And He did not let me down! I am very thankful and grateful Dr Yari took my case. He performed an excellent surgical repair of my wrist and I couldn't have wanted better. He also was a kind and compassionate human being that made me feel cared for during this hard time in my life. After all the bandages and immobilizers were removed, the surgical incisions Dr Yari made were so straight and clean looking and nearly invisible. He did a great job inside my wrist and outside! I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Shawn Yari to anyone!

ER follow up. Initially had difficulty getting in and phone scheduler did not see urgency because not trained to triage. I had to tell her why she needed to let MD know need for urgency of tendon repair needed. She sent note to office staff and they called and got me in next day. Overall great experience! ER staff needs a little help though.
