Financial Policies

For your convenience, we accept several forms of payment, including cash, personal checks, money orders, and all major credit cards.

We participate in most major insurance plans. Because these contracts frequently change, we may ask you to contact your insurance company to verify our participation in your plan. Our staff will verify your insurance status and may ask for your card(s) at each visit. Some insurance plans have co-payments, which will be collected at the time of service. If insurance verification cannot be established during your visit, then full payment will be expected at that time until the matter can be resolved.
