Payment Policies

Office Visits - Our fee for an office visit is due at the time of your visit. To make this as convenient as possible, we will accept cash, check, Visa or Master Card. To make it easy for you to take care of getting reimbursement from your health care plan, we'll provide you with the proper documentation. 

Surgery Fees - You should know that our surgical fee includes six weeks of the usual post-operative care and follow-up visits. We will be happy to discuss your particular case ahead of time. You are ultimately" responsible for covering the surgical fee. For patients without insurance, or in cases where our fees are not covered by your policy, our business office can make arrangements for payments. 

Insurance Claims - Because there are now so many insurance companies with differing rules and coverage requirements, we must ask that each patient be responsible for knowing the particular requirements of his or her policy. We must depend upon you to advise us about such details. Our office policy brochures will give you detailed information about insurance filing, e.g., Blue Shield, Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare­ Medicaid combinations and Workman's Compensation.

 

Office Appointments - (859)278‑4960

Office appointments may be made by calling the number above Monday through Friday, between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. One of the doctors is available every day of the week, so we can generally schedule an appointment for you within a day or two…or right away, in an emergency situation.   

ABOUT OUR CARE

Our special areas of medicine are "general and vascular surgery." We treat conditions of the vascular system (your blood vessels), as well as perform general surgical procedures (gallbladder, hernias and certain types of cancer, etc.). Your doctor has referred you to us because he knows that we are specialists in the type of care you require. Our treatment may take only an office visit or two. We'll frequently review your case among the six doctors in our practice. We may even request the opinion of other specialists. Then we'll present a treatment plan for your approval. If we recommend an operation, it will only be after due consideration of our examination, the input of your doctor and your opinion. Other situations may result in a treatment plan that simply requires us to "observe" your condition through periodic examinations and tests over a number of months or years. Our computerized records system helps us schedule patients for such visits and tests. Again, we'll keep you informed along the way, and forward results to your regular physician.

ABOUT OUR DOCTORS

The following biographies tell you about our medical training. Each of our doctors are certified by the American Board of Surgery and have received special vascular surgical training. They attend numerous continuing medical education courses each year to keep up with the latest medical findings and newest surgical techniques.
