Several years ago, the physicians of Northwest Diagnostic Clinic made changes to our practice that we feel have allowed us to serve our patients in the best way possible. In the past, our doctors made rounds at the hospital individually, significantly limiting office time and availability to our patients. Over the last few years, the hospital care of our patients has been handled by a group of "hospitalists," physicians who specialize in hospital-based medicine. Although not a part of NWDC, these doctors would provide seamless care to our patients and then refer them back to our physicians upon discharge from the hospital.
In cases where a patient is seen by one of these non-NWDC physicians, financial arrangements will be coordinated with their offices as well. All of these doctors are on numerous managed care plans, but please be aware that charges for services rendered by them will be billed by their respective offices, not by Northwest Diagnostic Clinic, P.A. We hope this will not cause any confusion for our patients.
