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.

Excellent doctor! He listens, he thinks and assesses all info, and clearly explains each indicator on the lab reports and responds thoroughly to any patient questions or concerns. Dr. Westwick carefully reviews recommended medications. He is very serious, but he is also very kind and has a good sense of humor. He is the doctor that my husband and I drive four hours one way to see for our annual exams.
