Please complete in full the information form when you register on your first visit. This allows us to correctly submit your insurance forms for you. We are very concerned about the rising cost of medical care and we try very hard to avoid unnecessary tests and procedures whenever safe to do so.
To assist our elderly patients further, we do offer discounts to pensioners.
To keep billing costs and our fees as low as possible we ask that you pay for office services at the time of service (Visa/MC accepted). Responsibility for payment is the patient’s, and payment arrangements, where necessary, must be made between our office and the patient.
We will be happy to discuss any questions you may have, or give you any possible assistance in this area.
