* Please note that the Office of Dr. Fydell can’t guarantee that your insurance provider will cover his services, therefore, it is in your best interest to understand your insurance prior to visiting his office and before services are rendered. For example, in some instances, Insurance "plans" require that the person who is insured to submit the receipts manually for reimbursement; therefore, it may be necessary for you and/or your spouse/partner/dependant to pay initially for Dr. Fydell's services following your appointment, then submit the invoice/receipt provided to you for reimbursement to your insurance company.
