BILLING DISCLAIMER:  Renee is a very experienced clinical and surgical physician’s assistant with over 15 years of spine specific experience. She is one of the few PAs in the country who has completed a fellowship in spine surgery. If you are seen by Renee or she participates in your clinical care, the patient will always be billed in-network. Due to some insurance agreements and narrow networks, if an in-network surgical assistant cannot be provided by your insurance carrier at the time of surgery, Renee or another out-of-network surgical assistant may be needed to assist in your surgery and willed be billed accordingly. Please discuss this with your insurance carrier before surgery or ask our team for assistance.
