March 2018

In an effort to improve our billing process, we are adopting a new patient billing service. The process of transitioning from one system to another will require us to change the paper statements that are mailed to our patients.

Any services billed BEFORE March 1, 2018 will use the statement shown below:


Any services billed AFTER March 1, 2018 will use the new statement show below: 


For a period of time after March 1, 2018, some patients will continue to receive these two statements, reflecting the different dates of service. We recognize that this may be confusing and a little frustrating as we make this transition.

We value our patients above all and apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Thank you for your patience.
