What is the Cancellation Policy?
We know your time is valuable, just as ours. Due to limited appointment times and high demand, we ask our patients to give the office a 48 hour notice of cancelation of appointments.
We ask our patients to pay for the first office visit regardless of whether they are insured or not, as we are not in network with any medical insurance.
Rarely, if ever, do insurance companies cover TMJ/TMD treatment.
As TMJD is often a complex and complicated condition, treatment costs and insurance coverage can vary significantly from patient to patient depending on diagnosis, the type of treatment and length of treatment needed. In most cases, getting insurance to pay for treatment can be difficult – if not impossible.
As a result, we have opted-out from participating in insurance programs as we have found their requirements to be a hinderance in helping patients get the care they need. By not taking insurance, we can work directly with patients to get them out of pain and treat them in the manner they need to be treated – instead of how insurance companies think they should be treated and when they should be treated. The pay-off for patients is excellent care, when and how they need it with no hidden fees, no premiums and copays and best of all - no surprises!
Therefore we offer a variety of payment options.
We accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks.
"TMJ/TMD" is considered a medical condition. Dr. Mistry is qualified to assess and treat that condition. Dr. Mistry celebrates a 90% success rate with treating TMJ/TMD - this includes the jaw locking closed (disc displacement without reduction). We are proud to say that people travel from far and wide to see her and seek her unique care!
As a courtesy, we will provide a super bill for your insurance company. The office does not bill Medical, Dental, Medicare, Tricare, or State Health insurance for patients.
Therefore you are ultimately responsible for all treatment related charges.
