Letter To Patients

To my dear patients:

 

It has been my honor and privilege to get to know you all and work with you to improve your pelvic health over these past several years.  It is therefore with incredibly mixed emotions that I must that effective November 1, I will no longer be accepting insurance or Medicare for treatment I provide to my patients.  Additionally, my Boynton Beach office will close. I will be available for emergencies for my existing patients for the next 30 days.

 

I will remain open at the Burns Road office on a cash fee-for-service basis.  I will continue to see postoperative patients as part of their global surgical care for the duration of the postoperative global coverage.  For those of you wishing to continue receiving my care, I will be publishing fees for my services so that you may be aware of the charges likely to result from a visit, depending upon the nature of the visit.  

 

Any services I have been providing for cash reimbursement previously (such as Mona Lisa Touch and Pelleted Hormone Therapy) will continue to be provided in the same way.  

 

The practice of medicine, particularly with so many women who need so much and have so few resources, has been tremendously rewarding for me.  However, my practice model is not consistent with maintaining the costs of running a successful practice. The reimbursement for the lengthy visits required to solve the very complicated problems that we deal with is insufficient to cover our operating costs.  I have always maintained that I would rather do anything besides rushing patients through on an assembly-line basis, but I can no longer continue to practice the way I need to – the way my patients deserve - with the current reimbursement structure. I have always tried to go the “extra mile” for my patients, as have my wonderful Nurse Practitioners.  We have changed lives in many instances when our patients came desperate for help. I am very proud of my staff for dealing with all of the stresses and uncertainties related to such a practice.

 

For those of you who are unable to continue to see me on a cash basis due to finances, I apologize that at this time I will not be able to continue to see you in network for insurance or Medicare.

 

If you wish to obtain your medical records to transfer care please contact my office staff.

 

I have included names of Board Certified Urogynecologists below who may be able to assist you with your urogynecologic issues.  

 

I wish all of you health and happiness, and please know that I feel honored to have been a part of your lives and hopefully a catalyst to improve your health.
