WILL MY INSURANCE COVER MY VISIT?
We provide direct access to care by eliminating the middle man (the insurance company) that often dictates what services can and cannot be provided. Instead we provide the best possible care for our patients as we deem medically necessary. We are re-establishing the doctor-patient relationship the way it was meant to be.
As a result, we are out of network with all insurance companies. A superbill will be provided upon request.
