For patients of Dr. Bob and Dr. Ben: Information on choosing your new doctor
Starting May 1, we encourage you to “try out” a new doctor or nurse practitioner in our group as your new care provider. You are welcome try out as many as you like while looking for the one that best meets your needs.
If you need to make a follow-up appointment for May 1 or after, our front desk staff will assist you in making an appointment with one of our other providers.
Some health insurance plans require you to be assigned to a new doctor and will issue you a new insurance card with your new doctor's name on it. If your health plan does that, you can wait until May 1, 2018, to let your health plan know the name of your new doctor. If your health plan automatically chooses a new doctor for you, and they are not a Cornerstone doctor, you can switch back by calling your health insurance company and telling them to change the physician on your card to the Cornerstone doctor of your choice.
We also have a nurse practitioner who sees patients for well visits (physicals), medication follow-up appointments, women's health issues, and acute illnesses. She will always consult with one of our physicians if it is appropriate. If your health insurance plan requires you to list a primary care provider, you will need to list one of our physicians. However, you are welcome to make appointments with the nurse practitioner for any or all of your visits.
We hope to make this transition as smooth as possible for you.
