Latest News

We can now perform DOT Physicals. Please call the office to schedule.

If your healthcare plan requires a deductible be met before benefits are paid, you will be required to pay 50% of your total charges at your office visit when you check out. You will be billed for any balance once your insurance has processed the claim. If there has been an overpayment, we will refund you the difference. If your health insurance plan does not require a deductible, we will continue to collect your copayment at check in as usual.
