How much will my visit cost?
A:Insurance coverage can vary by policy, which can effect the amount you may owe. We will verify your benefits before your appointment and contact you with an estimate of your responsibility. In most cases there are two parts to your visit: The evaluation and consultation (commonly referred to as the "office visit"), and any applicable treatment, which is charged in addition to the office visit. Most insurance only requires a "specialist copay" for the office visit portion, while treatments or other services are usually applied to any deductible you may have. This means that any treatment may be your responsibility.
How do I obtain my medical records?
A:Click here to download the Records Request form. You may fax the completed form to 972.542.1728.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
A:We have an appointment time just for you! We ask that you provide us with 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment by calling us at 972-542-3668. Even if you reach us after hours, please leave us a message. With some exceptions, missed appointments without notice will be assessed a $50 missed appointment fee.
How much will my surgery cost?
A:If you are planning to have your surgery at a surgery center or hospital, there are usually three charges involved: The surgeon (Dr Swails), the anesthesiologist, and the facility. When you schedule your surgery, we will provide you an estimate of the surgeon's portion as well as contact information for the anesthesiologist and facility where you may obtain an estimate directly. Keep in mind that if you have a deductible, you may be responsible for meeting the deductible before your insurance pays. Since the facility is usually the majority of the cost, payment arrangements can be made with them directly before your surgery.
