Making an Appointment

All appointments will be scheduled on a prioritized basis. Emergency and urgent issues are given same-day appointments when appropriate.

Fees and Payment
The physician fee for a new patient is usually between $150 to $300. With the exceptions of Medicare and Public Aid patients, we require payment at the time of service for the office visit. Other services, such as x-rays, braces, casts, and other miscellaneous items may charged in addition to the professional fee. We also accept cash, Visa, and MasterCard.
To make it easier for our patients to get the care they need and deserve, we participate in as many insurance plans as possible.
For your convenience, your insurance claims will be filed by our insurance department. In some cases, your insurance reimbursement may not cover the full amount of services provided. Regardless of insurance payment, the balance of the charges remains your personal responsibility. If you do not have insurance, your account will be considered "self-pay," and payment will be due at the time of service.
