Financial Policies

We accept cash, debit cards, money orders, and the following credit cards: VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We do not accept personal checks.

Payment is due when services are rendered. A deposit of 75% of estimate is due when patients are booked in for surgery or other in-hospital procedures. Balance is due when a patient is discharged.

We offer financing through CareCredit®. This program offers a range of plans with low monthly payments for those who qualify. You must contact CareCredit directly for additional information and application instructions. Please note: We do not offer all of the CareCredit financing plans. Please verify with our receptionist which plans are offered.
