MEET THE DOCTORS
I am committed to providing quality personalized eyecare for your entire family. Helping children with their eye sight problems – especially those who have special needs – is one of my main priorities and interests. I am a certified Optometric Glaucoma Specialist and I also specialize in the fitting of bifocal contact lenses. We provide treatment for minor eye infections and injuries and also for Dry Eye Syndrome. Our onsite laboratory makes it fast and easy to provide your eyewear needs and we have literally hundreds of frame styles to choose from in every price range — from very serviceable to the latest high fashions.
We often have patients that have both vision insurance (for example, VSP, EyeMed, Spectera, Davis, and others) and medical insurance (for example, Blue Cross, Aetna, Blue Shield, or Medicare). They are very different in terms of the services they cover, deductibles, and co-pays, and it's important for our patients to understand these differences.
Vision insurance is designed mainly to cover determining a prescription for glasses, to help pay for glasses or contact lenses, and to cover a yearly routine screening of the health of the eyes in a healthy patient that has no particular problems or symptoms. It is not equipped to deal with and does not usually cover medical conditions of the eye or that affect the eye, eye injuries, and/or medical or surgical treatments.
Medical insurance is designed to cover you when you have a medical problem, including one in your eyes or one that affects your eyes. Medical insurance does not cover routine eye care services or examinations for glasses, or routine vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Those are only covered by your vision insurance.
When you complain of a medical problem, have a medical diagnosis, or medical condition is present that affects your eyes, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes, to name just a few examples, or you have an eye disease or eye problem such as an infection (pink eye), dry eyes, allergy, glaucoma, or cataracts, again, just to name a few, we must file the claim with your medical insurance, and the coverages, co-pays and deductibles for that insurance will apply. Your vision plan does not cover these kinds of problems. Our office does not make these rules, they are made by the insurance companies themselves, and we must comply with them. If you have an HMO, such as Kaiser, or Blue Cross HMO, you may have no coverage for these kinds of problems in our office, and you will have to call your HMO to see a doctor if you want covered care for these conditions.
There is often no way to know prior to your examination which type of insurance will be the right one to file your claim with, because often we do not know what or if anything is wrong with your eyes before the examination. We make every effort to join as many insurance panels, both medical and vision, as we can for your convenience. If we are on your insurance company's panel we will file those claims for you. In the event that we do not accept your medical or vision insurance we will provide you with an itemized receipt so that you may file a claim for reimbursement with your insurance company yourself. If you have any questions, please let us know.
My first experience at this office was exceptional! From the ladies at the front desk when I walked in the door to Dr. Panzer, I cannot compliment them enough. They are so friendly and they genuinely care about their patients and it shows.
Our family had a great eye exam! You are warmly and professionally greeted the moment you arrive in the office. Dr Panzer is very friendly, giving a thorough exam with the most current techniques available. The eyeglass frame choices are current trends.
I always enjoy seeing Dr Panzer and his staff. Dr panzer is always thorough! Sorry you all flooded but the remodel is so nice!
