Why Do Patients Prefer Antietam UroSurgical Center Over a Hospital?
Several reasons. First off, it's a friendlier environment. Since all of our procedures are done on an outpatient basis, you don't have endless corridors, unanswered call buttons, or hospital food to contend with. Most of our procedures take less than an hour, with just another hour required in recovery. Afterwards, you'll go home to the comfort and familiarity of your own surroundings.
We've Taken the Pain Out of Billing
Unlike other treatment centers, Antietam Urosurgical Center does not require you to pay in advance of services. We're happy to handle the billing with your insurance company. Please note that if an anesthesiologist attends your procedure, you may receive a separate bill for those services.
For patients who are members of an HMO, IPA or other managed care provider, we ask that you tell us up front so that we can ensure proper authorization.
Occasionally these health care companies require us to use a particular laboratory's services. If this is the case with your insurer, we simply need to know beforehand.
More Questions? Just ask!
We hope that this information, along with the procedure fact sheet you'll be given by your physician, will answer all your questions. It's important that you feel comfortable and informed about the treatment or procedure you're about to experience, so if you're still uncertain about anything feel free to call the Center's staff and ask away.
To us, peace of mind is a giant step toward good health.
