Insurance

We participate with most major insurance plans. We will submit claims for participating insurances. Please see our billing section for a current list of the insurance companies we participate with. Yearly updates of registrations and insurance cards help to keep our charts current.  Please bring your insurance card with you to each visit. Copayments are expected at the time of service in order to avoid late fees.

Vaccinations

For several years, issues related to vaccinating children has been a favorite topic in the media. It has been a sure way of fueling controversy, creating TV ratings, selling newspapers, etc… Recently, “Googl-ing” has instilled in parents undue fear and anxiety through misinformation and often fabricated data about vaccines. One of the best ways to protect our children and patients’ health is through vaccination. Therefore, our practice will not accept families who refuse immunizations or request alternate vaccine schedules.

Confidentiality

Our practice strives to keep the highest level of patient confidentiality and respect. We follow strict guidelines from the Health Insurance Accountability and Reliability Act.
