Caution to future patients: although this office and physician may be "in network" with your particular health insurance, the anesthesiologist MAY NOT be "in network", AND this office will not inform prospective patients of this fact prior to procedure. Check with your insurance company on this. The anesthesiologist, Dr Ferdinand, is a private contractor to this doctor's office. After a procedure, you could be slapped with an additional large bill from the anesthesiologist. like we did..
