After-Hours and Emergency Care
Our goal is to see our patients in the office when they are ill, and we work hard to accommodate your needs for sick appointments. Even if the office is closed, please call the office and listen to the recording for our answering service number. When you call the service, you will be asked for your name and contact number, as well as a brief description of the issue. You will then either be referred elsewhere or one of our doctors will return your call.
In the event of a true life-threatening emergency, call 911 or use the hospital emergency room closest to your location. Click here to see a list of St. John Providence Health System’s Emergency Departments.

Billing and Insurance Information
We participate in many insurance plans for your convenience. To verify your plan is accepted, please call us at 313-343-7280.
You are expected to pay any co-pays at the time of your visit. You will also receive monthly statements showing any amount outstanding.

Insurance coverage and rules vary widely. We will verify that your coverage is active at the time of your visit, but it is your responsibility to understand your policy. This includes what kinds of services are covered, what your co-pays and/or deductibles are, whether you need referrals to see specialists, and whether you are required to use certain facilities, etc.
