Saturday Appointments

Dr. Durkee opens the third Saturday of the month by appointment only for existing patients who have student athletes, teachers, or exisiting patients who otherwise find it difficult to get in during regular office hours. New patients will be scheduled during regular office hours. Call the office for scheduling.

Insurance Changes

The new healthcare mandates and ICD-10 implementation are bringing changes to insurance coverage.  We are going to remain "in-network" with insurance companies that we currently bill, and are happy to send claims on your behalf, however, patient allowable amounts may be due at the time of your visit. Your insurance company will then send you the reimbursement check if your deductible is met or you have a co-pay policy.

Medicare patients:  We do not accept Medicare Advantage programs. You will be considered a cash patient unless you are traditional Medicare. Your out-of-pocket expense will be from $25.00 to $35.00 depending on your secondary. 

Thank You!
