New Patient Information
Welcome to Barkley Daugherty, DMD. Our team hopes to make a great impression on you and your family from the very first appointment. Before arriving, there is some important information that we would like to share with you about what to expect. Please read the following and don’t hesitate to contact us here in Olean if you have any questions or concerns. We want you to walk into the office feeling fully confident about your decision to become our patient.
If you are interested in getting a headstart on all of the new patient paperwork before your scheduled appointment, you can complete it at the link below. Patients can fill in their information at their own leisure. Once complete, your forms will automatically be sent to our front desk team, and we will be able to streamline the opening steps of your visit to make the experience even more prompt.
Our team members are very knowledgeable about the various in’s and out’s of dental insurance, and they can answer questions, file claims on your behalf, and find ways to maximize your available reimbursements for the best results possible. We can work with most major insurance plans – all you need to do is provide us with your information.
Thank you for choosing our office as your dental healthcare provider. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality lifetime dental care, so that you may attain optimum oral health. We would like our patients to be informed of our office financial policy. If you have dental insurance, we are anxious to help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. In order to achieve these goals, we need your assistance and your understanding of our financial policy. Payment for services are due at the time services are rendered, unless our staff has approved payment arrangements in advance.
If we are filing a claim to your insurance, you will be expected to pay the estimated patient responsibility at the time of treatment. If the insurance payment is sent to the patient then you will be responsible for the total amount at the time of treatment.
For your convenience we do accept cash, personal checks, Master Card, Visa, Discover and American Express. We also have Care Credit available for patients needing extended payment plans. This must be approved before services are rendered.
When we schedule your appointment, that time is reserved exclusively for you. If you are unable to keep your reserved time, we ask that you give us at least 24 hours’ notice by calling the office and leaving a voice message. We may be able to use that time for another patient. Failure to give the required notice may result in a fee being charged. Please do not send a text message from the patient notification system.
If you have specific questions about treatment, scheduling or payment, please do not hesitate to ask one of our staff members.
