Insurance companies frequently pressure doctors to prescribe their preferred treatments (for patients who may not need it) or the doctors face a refusal to pay for the treatment. Moreover, insurance companies often limit the frequency and duration doctors can spend with a patient. This inevitably leads to less than optimal care and unhappy, unhealthy patients.
Ultimately, by refusing to take insurance, we give the patient and doctor the ability to make better treatment decisions. Furthermore, we can provide real privacy. We can adjust appointment times to meet the patient’s needs and we can use whatever treatment options will work best for you, the patient.
