Office hours are by appointment. If you need to schedule an appointment, please call our main office number at (614) 221-7464 or (800) 964-9969 and choose Option 2 between the hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, except holidays. If you experience a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the closest emergency room.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call us as soon as possible, preferably over 24 hours in advance, so we can reschedule your visit. Repeatedly cancelling or failing to notify us to reschedule can jeopardize your relationship in our practice.
Honoring your appointment time is very important to us and we plan ahead to ensure disruptions to schedules are kept to a minimum. However, since our physicians are subspecialists, they deal with the most complex diseases and procedures. This means that even during routine appointments, issues are often discovered during the exam, which requires immediate treatment or testing. On occasion, we may have to delay or reschedule your appointment time due to emergencies, urgent medical consultations, or surgical situations. We will make every effort to expedite your appointment or reschedule it quickly for your convenience.

Billing and Insurance
Please bring all of your insurance information with you to your appointment, including your insurance card, your photo ID, and any changes that have been made since your last visit, so we can update your file with the current and most accurate data. Please be prepared to pay for services at the time of each visit. This includes any co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance, and non-covered services (such as refractions) as required by your insurance plan. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and Care Credit. For your convenience, there is an ATM in the lobby on the first floor.
We accept most major insurance plans and our staff would be happy to help you with your insurance coverage and file claims directly with your insurance plan. We participate with many plans in various networks. However, we may not participate in all plans provided by a specific insurance company. Before your visit, please contact the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card to determine if your doctor participates with your plan. If you do not have insurance, or if you have insurance with a plan with which we do not participate, please be prepared to pay in full at time of service. If you have financial difficulties meeting larger obligations, please speak to our patient account specialist. We will work with you to set up a reasonable payment plan.
