Notice to our Patients

The scope used to examine your nose and throat is a necessary diagnostic tool which may replace the need for additional, costly diagnostic procedures such as Computed Tomography (CT scan), in some circumstances. Additionally, please consider that the information acquired using the in office scoping procedure allows thorough, same day diagnosis in most circumstances.

Please note: this procedure, like a CT scan, MAY be subject to your deductible and/or coinsurance under your health insurance plan.

For any diagnostic procedure that is performed, you may be asked to pay the insurance allowed amount for the procedure at the time of service. Our office will bill your insurance policy and apply any contractual discounts to your balance.

Late Cancellation and "No Show" Agreement

We kindly ask you to provide 24 hours notice in the event you must cancel or reschedule an appointment. Failure to cancel or reschedule appointments 24 hours in advance will incur a $60 fee.

Thank you for your advanced notice and cooperation.

Please sign below, acknowledging the above statement and consent to the "No Show" agreement.
