Payment Options

In order to maintain our high standard of service, we require that payment be made at the time services are rendered. We will provide estimates with a range in cost for all surgeries and hospitalizations prior to treatment. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time, including prior to any treatment, so there are no surprises on your bill.

We are happy to accept:

Check (with valid ID)
Debit Card
American Express
