We accept Medicare and almost all commercial PPO and HMO insurance plans. HMO plans do require authorization prior to scheduling an initial appointment per HMO guidelines.
We regret we are not currently contracted with Medi-Cal (Gold Coast HMO)
Due to the small number of practicing endocrinologists in the area and the large patient need, we appreciate your patience in scheduling non-urgent appointments at least 3 months in advance. For urgent appointments, we will try to work with the referring doctor to meet their expedited needs. All patients must have a primary care doctor who has run the appropriate screening tests required to ensure a referral to an endocrinologist is appropriate.
