Our surgeons are committed to putting the needs of our patients first. We believe in improving the health of individuals and the communities we serve. We strive to provide superb, timely surgical care for our patients. All of our breast, colorectal and general surgeons are certified by the American Board of Surgery. What this means is that the surgeon has met a standard in surgery by fulfilling specific requirements related to education, evaluation of credentials, and successful completion of written and oral examinations.
Surgery and Your Primary Care Physician
Patients may see a primary care provider regarding a health concern, who may then refer the patient to see a surgeon. A patient may also make an appointment to see a surgeon without seeing a primary care provider. However, patients should check with their insurance company prior to scheduling appointments if they are not referred by a primary care provider (see referrals and tests).
