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. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice. Baylor Scott & White Health does not manage the insurances accepted for this doctor. Please contact the office directly to confirm coverage.

This is by far the best experience I've ever had with a doctors office from the front staff all the way up to the Dr. Kourkoumpetis. They are very friendly & easy to work with. Dr. Kourkoumpetis takes time to explain things on a level I can understand. He makes me feel like he is genuinely concerned about my health. My PCP is incredibly impressed with the way he keeps her up to date about my health care plan. Extremely attentive & friendly staff. I would highly recommend.
