Honest, Caring and Professional - You are Important to Us!
This is our commitment. It allows us to offer a wide range of services, skills and knowledge devoted to the care of women during pregnancy and throughout their everyday lives. The doctor/patient relationship is a privilege we understand as unique. Equipped with this understanding, we pledge all that we can to making your visit with us special and comfortable. In return, we trust that you will have confidence in our judgements and feel secure in your care.
We are proud to announce that your phone call will normally be answered by a staff operator. She will assist in directing your call to the proper location. Any emergency calls will be directed to the physician or nurse-midwife on call at the hospital. In addition to our appointment schedulers, referral coordinator and surgery coordinator, we have a triage team, headed by an RN, who is dedicated solely to facilitating your care. All calls directed to the triage phone system will be processed in order of urgency and need, with a commitment to returning all calls as quickly as possible. Remember to leave all phone numbers with your message where you might easily be reached with a response. We respect the integrity of our patients, therefore, we uphold patient confidentiality strictly at all times.

Insurance and Fees
As a patient at Southern Crescent Women's Healthcare, you assume a personal responsibility for your account with us. Should you experience a change of insurance, your name, address or phone number we expect you to notify us. Correct data is critical to the filing of insurance claims as well as allowing us to reach you concerning medical issues.
Payment is expected at the time of service unless we have a contractual agreement with your insurance carrier. If so, we will gladly file a claim on your behalf. For your information, we have compiled a list of insurance plans with which we have agreements.
