Our office wants to help you get your insurance benefits. Although our office does not participate in insurance plans, we provide you with the procedure and diagnostic codes required for you to submit for "out of plan" reimbursement. This usually is sufficient. Where insurance plans require further information or extended discussions, our staff will help you work with your insurance company. We charge a very modest pro-rated fee for the staff time involved.
Laboratory Providers: At our Summit location, we draw blood in the office and usually send the labs to either Bioreference Laboratory, Quest Labs or Labcorp.. At Somerset, there is a Quest lab station nearby. If your health plan prefers a different lab, we will give you a prescription for the lab tests. You you can take that prescription to the lab. If you (or your health plan) prefers that your primary physician order the lab tests, we can write out our recommendations for you to give to your primary physician. We will be happy to discuss these with your physician if he or she has questions.  We encourage your physicians to call us about any other aspects of your care.

We have no financial interest in any lab test including mail away specialty tests. Our objective is to help you obtain the testing you need as conveniently and as inexpensively as you can.

2)  When you complete the history form, be sure you include the separate pages that ask in detail about your past medical treatments and prior lab tests.  This is almost always very important information. Also, gather pertinent lab, x-ray reports, consultation letters, etc. so we can review the entire record as we prepare for your visit.

3)  Mail the new patient forms.  We will attempt to contact you to set up an appointment when we receive your forms.  Please be sure that your phone number and/or email address is correct.  If our response to you is delayed, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Note:  We must have the completed questionnaire before we can book an appointment.  We prefer you send us the lab reports with the questionnaire.  However, as a practical matter, it’s often best to send the questionnaire first while you continue to gather the lab records.

By obtaining the questionnaire first, we can review it as we prepare for your visit.  Most of our patients have complex problems.  The time involved in getting organized is well worth the (substantial) effort.

4.  We ask you to send a $150 deposit with your questionnaire. This is to hold your place.  We schedule 1.5 hours of the physician’s time and additional time with the nurse educator.  You might imagine the difficulty that results if a new patient fails to show.

If you must cancel, we will refund your deposit provided that you give at least 7 days notice.  After 7 days, if you have not rescheduled the doctor will have already devoted time carefully reviewing your case and the deposit is, therefore, non-refundable.
