Which health insurance plans do you accept?
We accept most major health insurance plans. Our clinic schedulers will discuss this with you at the time of scheduling your appointment. Please bring your current health insurance information with you to each clinic visit.
What should I expect?
Diagnosing injuries and disease begins with a thorough medical history and meticulous physical examination. X-ray imaging is often obtained on your visit to evaluate your problem. Dr. Kinkartz and his staff will walk you through each step to ensure that the process is easy to understand. After a full evaluation, we will discuss treatment options and devise a plan of care. A follow-up visit is often necessary to evaluate your response to the treatment plan. Additional imaging (eg. MRI, or CT scan), blood work, or other studies may be needed, depending on your specific problem.
Where are you located?
Dr. Kinkartz’s clinic is located on the northeast corner of Youree Dr and E Bert Kouns Industrial Loop, at the Portico Shopping Center. The clinic is located on the second floor of the main plaza building. There is ample free parking in the plaza. There is elevator access to the second floor, as well as stairs. Inform the receptionist upon your arrival to the clinic waiting room at Dr. Kinkartz’s check-in window (posted with sign). Please contact us if you have any difficulty with directions to the clinic.
