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 Asrani is a wonderful doctor - kind, caring and extremely good at what he does. If only more doctors under the Baylor-Scott&White Waxahachie umbrella were of the same caliber . . . Sadly, that is not the case

Dr. Asrani has always been very patient in answering all my questions, and even the questions of my sister who always accompanies me to appointments and my father who often times participates by facetime during my appointments. I 100% trust him as my liver specialist.
