Solutions to Logistical Problems

Financial Information

Creating Your Treatment Plan 

I believe in personalized care that is customized specifically to your unique needs. After you and I together determine what your goals and needs are, we develop a specific treatment plan for you. This approach ensures that the pricing my practice offers is as accurate and fair as possible, reflecting the specific details of your care plan that we discuss during our consultation and time together. After your consultation, my treatment coordinator will provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs involved and answer any questions you may have regarding fees, coordination, insurance, and anything else logistically. 

Financing Options for Medical Procedures

Financial Solutions

We encourage you to explore various financing options to find the one that best suits your financial needs. 


We are out-of-network with all insurance carriers and do not participate in any in-network agreements. To facilitate your access to care, all service fees—including consultations and surgical procedures—must be paid directly to our office by you. However, as a service for you, we are committed to expertly and proficiently filing prior-authorizations and claims to your carrier and assign any reimbursement they may approve directly to you.  

While we do not accept HMOs, Medicare, or state Medicaid programs (such as Medi-Cal in California), we are equipped to handle claims and prior authorization requests for the following PPOs: 

  • United Healthcare 
  • Anthem Blue Cross CA 
  • Aetna 
  • Blue Shield CA 
  • Cigna 
  • Other non-California based BlueCross/BlueShield entities 

Important Note: We strive to ensure you receive the maximum reimbursement possible; however, the specific benefits of your out-of-network plan will ultimately determine the reimbursement you receive, if any at all. You will be solely responsible for all agreed-upon fees regardless of claim approval and regardless of any unreimbursed amounts. 

Expert Insurance Advocacy Services: 

For more complex prior authorization and claims issues, including denial of benefits or under-reimbursement, we have established a partnership with an independent third-party health insurance advocate. This expert is available to assist you in securing the maximum possible reimbursement from your managed care plan. Should they successfully aid in your reimbursement, a modest fee will be applicable and payable directly to them as they are separate from our practice. If they are unsuccessful, you will not be charged for their services.
