We ask that you arrive 30 minutes early to complete paperwork, and to have x-rays taken. Dr. Worthingstun strives to see you within 5-20 minutes from the time you are placed in an exam room. It is more important to afford you the time you need with Dr. Worthingstun, rather than spending less time with you to stay “on schedule.” However we do plan, and do everything we can, to stay “on schedule” because we know your time is valuable. Please understand that if we are running late, you too will get every minute that you need with the doctor during your visit.
We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Wellcare, Tricare, Aetna and most managed care plans (see our Insurance page for a full list). If your plan requires referral authorization for a specialist, please ensure that authorization is obtained from your primary care provider prior to your office visit.
