Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rocca "It is of paramount importance that the care of the patient be a partnership between the physician and the patient. The physician's role is to make recommendations based on his/her expertise. It is the patient's responsibility to decide what is best for him/her based on those recommendations. In order to achieve the best outcome, it is important for the physician and patient to work together."

$445 consult fee for non insured. I was screened for insurance right away. Payment is no problem for me but It's the end if January and they can't take me till June. They offered to put me on the cancelation list as people don't show up but it's just not realistic.
