  • University Affiliation

    Each physician holds a full-time faculty appointment at Wayne State University. As faculty, they teach residents, medical students, and other graduate students about the specialty of Otolaryngology.

    Part of the teaching process is actual "hands-on" experience with patients. For this reason, patients may at times be examined by students before being examined and treated by attending faculty member physicians. Be assured that at no time do students act independently of faculty physicians. The physician is always present to discuss the case with the student and make the decision on treatment. If for some reason patients do not wish to be seen by residents or students, the receptionist should be informed

  • Hospitalization

    If it is necessary to hospitalize a patient, the professional office will make all the arrangements. Our doctors are on staff at numerous hospital affiliates and training sites. The doctors on staff will arrange the admission process. After admitting arrangements are made, the hospital will contact the patient with specific information on such admission. When hospitalized, patients receive medical care from many sources besides the attending physician; therefore, it is not uncommon to receive several different bills for the care provided.

  • Medical Insurance and Payments

    Physicians participate with Blue Cross-Blue Shield, Medicare and multiple other health plans. Specific plan participation is verified at the time of service. Services payable by insurance are billed directly to the insurance company involved. Many plastic surgery procedures are not covered by insurance and require full payment before scheduling of the procedure. The office staff will discuss payment policies at the time of the first clinic visit

    Insurance is considered a method of compensating the patient for medical expenses. Insurance companies vary greatly in the method and amount of payment made for medical services and may not entirely pay for the services provided. Any deductible amounts, co-payments, or other allowable balances not paid by the insurance company are the responsibility of the patient.


    Patients are expected to pay for professional services at the time they receive them. Our fees are at a reasonable level, based upon community standards. The office staff will discuss fee and payment requirements during the clinic visit. For the convenience of the patient, Visa, Master Card, Care Credit, personal checks and cash are accepted. Questions about fees or payment policies can be discussed with our trained office staff.

    Patients who have major medical coverage on their insurance plans may have to submit receipts to the insurance carrier for direct reimbursement, according to the terms of the policy. Major medical does not pay the doctor directly.
