If you are a self-pay patient (in other words, if you do not have any insurance coverage and are not covered by governmental programs), you will be asked to make a down payment at the time of your appointment. If you are unable to make the down payment for financial reasons, please tell us. You may be eligible for assistance.
Insurance cards are requested at every appointment.
