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.
