Payment OptionsAccept Wellcare, Pinnacle and Summit managed through Magellan. I focus on building relationships with my patients and, therefore, I do not accept other insurance plans that offer to pay me me so little that I would have to rush you in and out to see enough people to make a living. Hence I charge $150 for a new patient appointment and $125 for a 20 minute followup appointment. I can provide a bill you may submit to be reimbursed for out of network benefits. I offer discounts for Medicare pts.

I am sorry to say that I cannot recommend Dr. Root. I was given medications without being informed of their potential consequences fully. A few side effects were mentioned, but my medical history was never asked for nor taken into consideration. I was not even aware of their neurological function of these meds.In fact, Dr. Root is suspiciously zealous about prescribing them as if he has some kind of agenda other than patient care. As a result, after being unable to get a hold of the doctor, I was in the ER because of the meds. I went through a week of hell. I have never once had suicidal ideations, I am a functional and stable person normally, but now I am experiencing symptoms I've never had, terrifying symptoms. Talk about swatting a fly with a sledgehammer. I am now off of the dangerous medications, but I am still paying the price. And my healthcare funds are now bled dry due to so many out of pocket expenses. What happened to Do No Harm? Perhaps professionals can chalk up their negative reviews to "symptoms of patient illness." Speaking of, Dr. Root was self-assured in the fact that he had me "pegged" in 5 minutes. Well, that's fine. I know better and there are a host of other reviews that know better too.
I did not receive a receipt for payment, there are no staff. Stay away from this operation.
