Fair, Straightforward, and Upfront Pricing
We are happy to announce our new simple fee-for-service payment structure. As high deductible and co-insurance plans have become more common the number one complaint (practically the only complaint) we hear from our patients is the unpredictable and sometimes outrageous bills they receive as determined by their insurance company plans (something we have zero say over). Health insurance is great and necessary to cover costly medical expenses, but for simple dermatology visits and procedures it is in our opinion a very broken system that is getting worse yearly. On our end we are spending countless hours and great resources dealing with billing issues- not something we have any interest in! We want to focus on what we do best- providing amazing service and results for our patients!

*Good News- We are happy to provide a bill to submit to your insurance plan for you to be reimbursed if you have out of network coverage.
**More Good News- Lab fees can get expensive and they are determined by outside laboratories that we have no affiliation with. Luckily all outside lab fees, pathology fees, diagnostic tests, and referrals may be covered by your insurance as per your regular insurance company participation and rules.
We are making changes that are mutually beneficial and allow us both to focus on what is most important in our office- giving you the best service and results possible!
