Drs. Shade, Ritz and Davies are dedicated to your wellness. They work closely together to create the best possible experience for you in their medical practice. The success and feedback they receive has been gratifying. However, the many changes in the healthcare landscape have created a challenging environment, where the physicians and their assistants are required to spend increasing time on tasks that are not paid for by insurance such as phone calls, insurance authorizations, emails, prescription refills, form completions, and coordination of care with specialists.
In order to focus on patient care and allow our doctors to stay independent, we charge an annual fee to cover these non-reimbursable administrative tasks and upgraded services. This is above and beyond your customary insurance payment for services rendered. Unfortunately, your insurance will NOT pay these fees. However, if you have a Flexible Spending Account, it may be covered.
Coming soon, a new online patient portal will make it easier than ever to communicate with us as well as to view and store your labs. We are able to e-prescribe medication for you. When you come to our office you will only be seen and treated by a board certified Medical Doctor as we do not utilize physician extenders such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners. After hours calls to us are directly answered by one of the three physicians. As always, we offer same day/next day appointments for you when needed.
Please contact Jane Cook, our Office Manager with any questions you might have.
