UNIVERSITY AFFILIATION
Each physician holds a full-time faculty appointment a 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 residents or students before being examined and treated by your physician. Be assured that at no time do residents or students act independently of your physician. The physician is always present to discuss the case with the resident or student and makes all decisions regarding treatment. If for some reason you do not wish to be seen by a resident, please let the receptionist know prior to your appointment. Please visit www.otolaryngology.med.wayne.edu for information about the Wayne State University School of Medicine Department of Otolaryngology including medical student, residency, fellowship and research information.

EMERGENCY CARE
After office hours, an on-call team consisting of an otolaryngology resident and staff doctor is available to respond to emergencies. To reach the afterhours otolaryngology team call 313-745-5111 and ask for the ENT resident or physician on-call. In life threatening emergencies, the patient should be taken to the nearest hospital emergency room.

MEDICAL INSURANCE
Our physicians participate with Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Michigan, Medicare and many other health plans. Specific plan participation is verified at the time of service. Services payable by insurance will be billed by our office directly to your insurance company. Many plastic surgery procedures are not covered by insurance and require full payment before the procedure is scheduled. The office staff will discuss payment policies with you at the time of your first office visit. Insurance is considered a method of compensating you, 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 your insurance company are your responsibility.

FEES AND PAYMENT
Patients are expected to pay for services at the time they receive them. Our fees are at a reasonable level, based upon professional standards. The office staff will discuss fee and payment requirements during your office visit. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, personal checks and cash. 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.
