Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Apelian "We provide high quality, accessible care to our patients. We believe that each patient is made in God's image and deserving of the utmost respect and consideration. We do not participate in any of the health plans and we do not want any insurance company to get in between our patients and us. We do, however, supply all the paperwork needed for our patients to get properly reimbursed. Keep in mind that those with health plans can come to us and have their prescriptions, lab and radiology tests and hospitalizations covered."
