Telephone calls between 8:30 – 5:00pm closed for the lunch hour noon – 1pm.  We also offer colonoscopy appointment’s on Saturday mornings.

Payments

For all office visits, payment is required at time of service. Co-pays, deductibles and or coinsurance for those patients with Medicare or one of our contracted managed care plans are also required at the time of your visit. If you have a deductible be prepared to pay $75 at the time of your visit and you will be balance billed for services if needed.

Additional charges may be generated for procedures and tests. The providers at RCRS will bill your insurance carrier for expected payment. You will be responsible for any deductible and/or co-pay amount.

OFFICE PROCEDURES: 

As colorectal specialists it is very likely that your provider will perform a diagnostic procedure essential in managing your medical condition. These procedures are known as anoscopy, proctoscopy, and/or a flexible sigmoidoscopy. Your insurance carrier may define them as a “surgical procedure”. Your explanation of benefits may reflect the use of this term and you may be charged an additional co-payment or deductible for these procedures.

If it is determined that surgery is necessary, we will coordinate payment arrangements for any procedures your insurance company determines is your responsibility.
