How will I pay for my care?

If you have insurance, please bring your card with you to every visit. You may have a co-pay associated with your insurance plan, we will collect this at the time of your visit. If no co-pay is required, we will bill your insurance on your behalf. If you do not have health insurance coverage, payment will be due at the time of service. We strive to have all aspects of our practice, including our professional fees, reflect our ethical and rational approach to your care.

Do I need a referral to make an appointment?

No, we are currently accepting new patients and it is not necessary to have a referral in order to make an appointment with our office. However, for your visit to be covered through your insurance plan please contact your insurance provider to understand the terms of your policy. In case of HMO insurance plans, if you are currently assigned to a different primary care provider, you must change the provider to Dr Thukral in order for the visit to be covered. We can assist you in the process of selecting Dr Thukral as your Primary Care Physician.

Is there anything I can do to prepare for my first appointment?

Please make sure that you arrive to our clinic at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. This allows us the opportunity to complete the registration and insurance verification process, which will help us get you in to see the doctor with minimal wait time. To save time, you can also print and complete the New Patient Form ahead of time and bring them with you to your appointment. If you are under specialist care, please bring your doctors contact information with you. If you are currently taking any prescription medications, please bring all your medications (in their original containers) with you to every visit.

Do I need to have my blood pressure checked regularly?

It is recommended that your blood pressure be checked every two years after the age of 21. We also recommend annual check-ups with your primary physician after the age of 50 and frequent check-ups if you have additional risk factors. The most common risk factors for high blood pressure include family history, being overweight and having a high sodium or poor diet.
