If you are unsure of our location, check out our map here.
Traffic on Metacom Avenue can get heavy during peak travel hours, typically between 3 pm and 5 pm. Please make sure to plan accordingly.
The goal of the first visit is to fully assess both your pain and the underlying cause of that pain. The doctor will start by taking a thorough history followed by a comprehensive, functional examination. The doctor will then render the necessary treatment after explaining the purpose and nature of the treatment modalities used.
At our office, we feel it is important and ethically necessary to tell the patient what they need, according to the patient’s goals, discuss the treatment options, and arrive at a comprehesive treatment plan.
We are in-network providers for most major insurance companies. For these insurance companies, we will help to verify patient's specific coverage and determine out of pocket copayment or coinsurance. We will submit directly to the insurance company on patient's behalf and manage specific insurance coverage.
For out-of-network insurance companies, we will provide patients with the necessary paperwork to submit directly to their insurance company. Many insurances will cover part or all of your care.
Many of our patients are on a self-pay basis and we keep our fees competitive without compromising quality of care.
Payment will be due at the time of service.
Patients may also use their Health Savings Accounts (HSA) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) regardless of whether we are in-network or out-of-network.
Our purpose is to serve all of our patients. Please be aware of the following office policies to ensure an efficient experience.
Payment is due at time of service. We accept cash, checks, credits cards, HSA and FSA cards.
We kindly request 24 hours notice for appointment cancellations in order to help another patient. As a courtesy, we will provide appointment reminders. Missed appointments without adequate notice will result in a fee.
After Hours and Weekends
We do not have on-call hours. If there is an immediate need after hours, please consult your primary care physician for evaluation. In case of emergencies, call 911.
Non-emergency phone calls will be returned within the first 30 minutes of opening the next operating day.
