WELCOME TO NEW ENGLAND DERMATOLOGY & LASER CENTER'S WEBSITE


Welcome

Welcome to New England Dermatology and Laser Center.  As one of the most respected dermatology practices in New England, we are dedicated to providing high quality, state-of-the art, comprehensive dermatologic care to our patients.  We have a long history of patient-centered care, beginning with Dr. Setrag A. Zacarian at Dermatology Associates in 1954, then merging with Valley Dermatology and Joseph Corcoran, MD, in 1994 to become New England Dermatology, PC, DBA New England Dermatology & Laser Center.


Specializing in skin, hair and nails for adults and children, we continue to grow to meet the needs of our patients in Western Mass, Northern Connecticut and Southern Vermont.  In addition to general dermatology, our services include Mohs surgery, cosmetic dermatology and laser surgery, esthetics and dermatopathology.  We invite you to explore our website further to learn more about us.  We very much appreciate your selection of our office for your dermatology care.


OUR MISSION

We, at New England Dermatology & Laser Center, value our patients and are committed to providing unparalleled quality and compassionate care in a warm and cooperative team-based environment. 


ABOUT US

Our practice was founded in 1954 by the late Dr. Setrag A. Zacarian and has expanded to become one of the largest dermatology practices in New England.  As advances in science, technology, and the practice of medicine occur, we are continually striving to provide state-of-the-art skin care.  By combining our many years of experience in the practice of dermatology, we sincerely believe we are able to provide the highest quality and most comprehensive, cost effective care available.  One of the many advantages to patients and physicians in being in a group practice is the ability to discuss and consult with one another about challenging patient care problems. 


All of the physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners at New England Dermatology & Laser Center are Board Certified and/or licensed in their respective disciplines.  Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are licensed health practitioners who work with and assist physicians in providing patient care. PAs are certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants after passing an examination developed by the National Board of Medical Examiners and are awarded the certificate "Physician Assistant-Certified" or "PA-C". FNPs are certified by the Accreditation Board of Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC) and the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).  Each physician assistant or nurse practitioner is under the supervision of a physician who, along with a medical assistant, work as a team to provide optimum patient care.  In addition, we are fortunate to be supported by highly dedicated and experienced office staff who all work together for the common good of our patients.


 We are proud of the wonderful support team that we have selected in order to better serve the needs of our patients.  Please don't hesitate to ask questions regarding your care.  We want your experience with New England Dermatology and Laser Center to be as pleasant and efficient as possible.

Billing & Payment


DOCTOR-PATIENT RELATIONS
Doctor-patient relations are based on mutual understanding. Do not hesitate to ask questions if something is not clear to you. Our office and medical equipment have been planned with much thought and care to provide quality medical service in a pleasant, efficient, and friendly atmosphere. If you have any suggestions or complaints regarding our services or fees, please tell us so that we may better serve you.


New England Dermatology & Laser Center has been providing skin care to the Greater Springfield Community since 1954. We honor and value the confidence you have placed in us over these years and we thank you very much.


FEES

There is no "standard" office visit fee to cover all patient visits. In fact, there is a range of charges based upon certain well-defined criteria, which follow American Medical Association guidelines. Initial office visit fees tend to be higher than those for follow-up visits as additional administrative effort is required to establish a new patient file. Fees vary and are based upon the number and complexity of the presenting problems, extent of the physical exam performed, and the degree of decision making regarding diagnosis and treatment. Charges are not solely determined by the amount of time spent with the physician and may not be the same at each visit. If you have questions about your charges, please ask for an explanation.


INSURANCE BILLING & MANAGED CARE PLANS
For plans requiring a co-payment, it is expected at the time of your visit. We are providers for many managed care plans, but you will need to check with your insurance company to be certain that we participate in your particular plan. Additionally, if your plan requires you to obtain a referral from your primary care physician prior to seeing a specialist, you must bring it with you, or our office must have received it prior to your visit in order for you to be seen. If your visit has not been authorized, you have the option of rescheduling or signing a waiver making you financially responsible for the entire charge. This is your decision. Please remember that the specialist provider is only authorized to treat you for a specific number of visits over a specified period of time. 
We will submit claims to your insurance carriers. Any charges not covered will remain your responsibility. If there is a financial hardship, you may ask to arrange a payment plan. Questions regarding your bill may be discussed with our billing office at (413) 788-0532, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  


BILLING FOR COSMETIC SERVICES

It is our office policy to require payment in full at the time of your visit for cosmetic consultations and procedures. You will be given a receipt that you may submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement if your policy so provides. Payment may be made with cash, check, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.


PAYMENT OPTIONS
Payments may be made by Cash, Check or Credit/Debit Card. We accept MasterCard, Visa & Discover Card. Payments can be made by phone with our business office (413) 788-0532, 8am - 4pm, Monday through Friday.  Contact our billing office to set up an account.  


GIFT CERTIFICATES

Gift certificates may be purchased at any of our offices and The Spa at New England Dermatology and are valid for 7 years after the date of issuance. Gift certificates may be used toward New England Dermatology & Laser Center services, procedures and products sold. Gift Certificates may not be redeemed for cash.


DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS
Self-pay balances are due within 30 days. Failure to respond to bills within 60 days may result in discharge from the practice, cancellation of future appointments, and transfer of the account to a collection agency which would have a negative effect on your credit.


MISSED APPOINTMENTS

Patients’ who “no show” or do not give a 24 hour cancellation notice may be charged a $25.00 fee for their missed appointment. Those who repetitively fail to honor their appointments or do not pay the “missed $25.00” charge may be discharged from the practice.

REFUND POLICY
We are pleased that you have chosen New England Dermatology & Laser Center for your skin care and we appreciate your confidence in us. For any patient receiving cosmetic treatments or treatments not covered by insurance, the estimated cost of treatments will be discussed prior to undergoing procedure.
Unfortunately, no assurances or guarantees can be given regarding an individual’s response to treatment for cosmetic procedures. As every patient has a different anatomy, sometimes the correction is less than what he or she had expected or wanes quicker than expected. Treatment may be more or less than the estimate depending on the treatment needed for correction. Additional treatments may be required to try to meet the patient’s expectations. Please call our office at (413) 733-9600 to be seen for follow-up should any of these concerns arise.


Refunds for co-payments, treatment or services already provided are not granted. If you feel you have been incorrectly charged, please call our billing office at (413) 788-0532. If, after speaking with us, you dispute the charge, you must send a written billing error notice to New England Dermatology & Laser Center 3455 Main St., Ste. 5 Springfield, MA 01107. Your notice must reach us within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you. The notice should include your name and account number, the dollar amount of the billing error, and the reasons why you believe there is a mistake. We will acknowledge your complaint in writing within 30 days after it is received, unless the problem is resolved within that period. Within two billing cycles (but not more than 90 days), we will conduct a reasonable investigation and either correct the mistake or explain why the bill is believed to be correct.
If a refund is in order, it will be processed via the same method as the original payment or, at the Company’s* discretion, a check may be issued to you. If payment was made by credit card, we will credit your account. While every effort is made to provide refunds in a timely fashion, your financial institution may take several days to reflect refund transactions. Please allow 7-10 days for a credit to appear on your credit card statement. If payment was made by check, the refund check will be issued within 30 business days from the date of purchase.
