 We consider quality care an investment in your health.  It is our objective to provide you with the best available care at a reasonable cost.  In an effort to eliminate the expense of billing, you can help by making your payment at the time of your visit.  You may pay by check, cash or any major credit card and you will recieve a reciept for your records.

APPOINTMENTS...

Scheduling of appointments can be made any day of the week with the receptionist or the answering service.  Be sure that you clearly specify which office location (5540 W. Montrose or 111 N. Wabash) you wish to be seen so that it can be correctly scheduled.  Of course, emergencies can always be handled as soon as possible by calling either office.  We are aware many of our patients are busy and require a specific time slot.  For this situation, we suggest that an appointment be made upon leaving the office after each visit.

INSURANCE...

To simplify filing for covered services with your insurance carrier, we will issue you an itemized reciept upon payment of your bill and/or help you complete your insurance forms.  We can also submit claims and accept assignment of benefilts for the various HMO and PPO plans that we are contracted with.  Please note: if we accept assignment you then are responsible for any deductibles or co-payments.  We must stress, however, that the ultimate financial responsibility for services rendered rests totally with you.
