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.

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. Barnett was professional, kind, thoughtful, never rushed. I felt like she really listened to my questions and concerns. She explained in detail, drew charts and graphs to help me understand exactly what I was dealing with. She was personal, felt like my treatment was prescribed just for me, my age, my general health. She was caring, Interested In and about my whole person - physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. She gave me time to evaluated and consider the things she told me. I never felt rushed or pushed. I always felt like I understood what was going to be happening, what possible side effects I would or might experience to the treatment. She was encouraging. I always felt like she knew exactly where I was in the treatment, knew how I was doing, listened to me and answered my question with care and truth, sensitivity, and genuine concern. She is a tremendous Doctor.
