Cancellation and Billing Policies
Dr. Sykurski takes your time commitments and her time commitments seriously. She understands that we all live in a very busy world with demanding schedules. Dr. Sykurski works by appointment only and carefully schedules your time. Due to the very thorough treatment you can expect from her, she will set aside 1-2 hours for your consultation time. She does not stack appointments with 2-5 patients waiting waiting to be seen.
The time set aside is for you and her so you can spend the necessary time together to cover as much detail as possible concerns regarding your health issues.
Dr Sykurski highly values you as a person and your time. She also expects you to value the appointment time that has been set aside just for you.
We require 48 hours advanced notice for all appointment cancellations. Failure to cancel your appointment within 48 hours, the following schedule of fees will be assessed directly to you. These cancellation fees cannot be covered by insurance, flex spending accounts, or Health Savings Accounts.

Insurance Billing Policies
1. We will NEVER guarantee that any
service or lab is covered under your plan.
You are welcome to call your insurance plan if you have any issues
regarding what is covered. Please be
advised that even when you do call to check on coverage, they will always state
“stated benefits are not a guarantee of payment.” You are never guaranteed 100% that any
service or lab test is covered by your health insurance plan.
2. Our office uses a number of “out of
network” labs for testing. We will offer
you the CASH discount price and inform you of how to attempt to get
re-imbursement from your health insurance plan.
We cannot guarantee that your plan will reimburse you or how much they
will reimburse you. If you have “out of
network” benefits, they will process the claim to your out of network benefits,
and then split the responsibility with you. You may be responsible for 10%,
40%, 50%, 60%, or all of it. We only use these “out of network” labs when a
suitable lab test is not available through the local servicing laboratories.
