    • We have revised our schedule so as to provide appointments in a timely fashion, minimize paper work and waiting times in check-in, and ensured adequate time at the visit to address your concerns.
  • Professionalism: Adhering to an uncompromising code of clinical and ethical standards among ourselves and with the public. The cornerstones of these standards emphasize honesty, integrity, transparency and mutual respect.
    • Maintaining the highest level of professionalism reflects the privilege of being allowed to be responsible for your care.

    • This is achieved by ongoing continuing education, teaching at various medical schools in the Kansas City metro area and lecturing on regional and national basis.

How Does My Insurance Work in Your Office?

We understand healthcare can be expensive and out of reach for many. That is why we offer affordable self-pay rates and provide the necessary forms so you can be reimbursed by your insurance. If you have not met your deductible, have high co-pays or with services not covered by insurance, we can offer the best value. If you have met your deductible for the year, then you will often find that it is less expensive to be seen in our office than to remain in-network.

How Much Paperwork is Involved?

Being a patient shouldn’t test your patience! We have been able to reduce the paperwork necessary to be seen. In addition, we make our registration forms simple and available online, so that they may be completed prior to arrival if a patient prefers.
