When Should I Arrive for My Appointment?
New patients should arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment. This is so we can create a chart and have your insurance verified.
What Insurance Do You Take?
- Empire Blue Cross
- GHI Medical
- Horizon Blue Cross

We cannot guarantee that we are in-network with your particular plan even if we accept that brand of insurance. To make sure we are in-network with your plan, contact your insurance company and ask if we are an in-network provider for your plan.
Important Note: Since insurance benefits are unique to each patient’s insurance coverage, it is your responsibility to know your insurance benefits PRIOR to service being rendered. We are not responsible for unpaid amounts as a result of deductibles or denials from your insurance company. We can never guarantee insurance coverage for any service provided. You are responsible for charges denied by your insurance company

What Is A Board-Certified Dermatologist? And Why Is It Important?
Board certification requires the physician to successfully complete approved national examinations that assess knowledge, experience and skills that are needed to provide high quality medical care. Additional ongoing educational programs must also be completed to maintain certification. Although certification by the American Board of Dermatology does not assure competency, it does attempt to assure that the physician meets high standards that are set by the medical specialty board.
What Is A Complete Skin Examination?
A complete skin exam involves examination of the skin on head trunk and extremities. This is a great opportunity to have all of your skin lesions evaluated by a trained specialist. This type of skin exam is recommended, especially for new patients, follow-up patients with a history of skin cancer or if the patient desires it.
Can I Become A Patient If I Do Not Have Insurance or If You Do Not Accept My Insurance?
Yes. We would be happy to care for your dermatological needs, but you will be responsible to pay all office fees.
Please call the office if you would like information about our fee scale.
