ALL PATIENTS – ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR VISIT
Arriving at your scheduled appointment time is greatly appreciated. We cannot guarantee that you can be seen before or after your scheduled appointment.
It is important to give the receptionist ALL NEW INSURANCE INFORMATION prior to your visit. This information is very important so that the physician can send any specimen or culture to the correct laboratory to avoid any unnecessary charge to you. It is also very important that we have your correct address and phone number.
TREATMENT OF MINORS
Minors cannot be treated without a guardian present. If you are sending your child to their visit with an adult acting as their guardian, they must have a Designation of Person in Parental Relationship form filled out and signed by you.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. It is our office policy that the adult presenting the child for treatment is responsible for payment of all payments due at the time of service.
You must present your valid insurance card, photo ID and referral (if required by your insurance plan) at each visit. You can also call the phone number on your insurance card to verify that your primary care physician has entered a referral in the system. You will be responsible for any co-payment, deductible and/or co-insurance at the time of service. Co-payments are collected prior to service. You may also be responsible for any amount that is not covered because your insurance carrier denies the claim (not medically necessary or cosmetic in nature).
We request that all cell phones be turned off during your visit.
Payments, Balances and Billing
All payments, including account balances, must be made at the time of service. For your convenience, the office accepts cash, checks*, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and debit card.
*If you will be paying by check, we will need a valid driver's license for the person whom is the check holder.
**There will be a $25.00 fee for any check returned for non-sufficient funds.
All cosmetic procedures require a 50% deposit to secure an appointment. You are required to give 72 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment or your deposit will be forfeited.
If you would like to have your records transferred to us from another office, or vice versa, please complete a record release form and return to our billing department. Please note, there is fee of .75 cents per page for medical records and a fee of $1.00 per photo, due prior to release from our office.
