Questions & Answers

Will you take time to listen to me?

Yes. At Dulcimer Medical Center we believe patients want and deserve a provider who is competent, compassionate, respectful, truthful, and thorough… someone who will really listen. We want to come alongside our patients in a partnership where care is based on a continuous healing relationship. Patients however are in control of their health, and care is customized to each patient's needs and values.

What services do you provide?

Dulcimer Medical Center is a primary care provider with family practice physicians, nurse practitioners, L.P.N.'s, and support staff. We offer a wide variety of services including lab tests, X–Rays, EKG's, Ultrasounds and allergy tests. Minor surgical proceedures are done on site in our two well equipped surgical rooms.

What happens if I need to go to the hospital?

Since our founding in 2007 we have put the care and well-being of our patients first, coming along side people to help them to be as healthy as possible. This included caring for our patients when treating illness that required admission to the local Fairmont Hospital. As the practive grew we found ourselves increasingly over-stretched. Despite our best efforts to recruit additional physicians we have not been successful. Thus, we made the difficult decision to turn over the in-hospital care of our adult patients to the skilled Hospitalists at the Mayo Health System in Fairmont. We will continue to provide excellent in-hospital care for all our pregnant patients and care for any pediatric patients who may require hospitalization as well. Our goal, of course, is to keep you healthy and out of the hospital except for planned procedures. The Hospitalists are committed to provide a complete summary of your care and medications upon discharge to your primary Dulcimer provider and arrange for timely follow-up appointments with your provider. We know this will disappoint some of you; it was not an easy decision for us. Please let us know if you experience any problems.

I am a Medicare patient. Why am I getting a bill for my annual exam?

Medicare does not cover routine/preventative physicals. If you schedule and receive an annual/routine exam it will be billed that way. Always check your coverage and benefits in your medicare manual if you are unsure of your coverage/benefits.

Will my allergy testing be covered by insurance?

Many insurance policies do cover allergy testing. Dulcimer Medical Center does a variety of testing for patients who are having issues that may be related to allergies. If you call the business office, we can give you procedure codes for the test that you might have done. Then you should check with your insurance company to see if the testing would be covered. It is every patient's responsibility to know his/her insurance coverage.

If I have insurance, why do I need to pay for a sports physical upfront?

Sports physicals are not typically covered by insurance. Dulcimer Medical Center has special days set aside to do sports physicals as a cost savings to patients. If a regular office visit is booked for a sports physical during regular hours—other than those set aside for sports physicals, the cost to the patient would be greater.
