FAQs

We are still working on this page. We hope to eventually have most of your questions answered here.

Do you accept Insurance?

The Mandarin Wellness Center does not participate with any insurance and is opted out of Medicare.

Full payment is expected at the time of service. An insurance claim will be submitted on your behalf for possible reimbursement if you have a PPO policy with Out-of-Network Benefits.

Why can’t I reach anyone on the phone?

This is one of our biggest issues.

We ask you to understand that we are a small office and try very hard to please everyone. We have around 700 active patients, who are all very sick. Despite this, Dr. Hartman does not want to turn away any prospective patients, as many people have run out of options for doctors willing to address their circumstances.

 

How do I become a New Patient?

The new patient packet can be found by following the link on our Home page.

We will call you to schedule once we have received the packet and a copy of your medical records. These records allow the doctor to know a bit about your history and will reduce the amount of bloodwork that will need to be done by our office. The new patient paperwork also contains a records release form so we can obtain your records from a previous doctor.

You will also find our current office policies, including the requirement of a $200 non-refundable deposit for a New Patient appointment.

The link also contains a Medicare contract. This contract ONLY needs to be filled out if you have Medicare Primary. This contract allows you to receive a discount off of your visits because no claims or receipts can be sent to Medicare, as Dr Hartman is an opted out physician. If Medicare is your secondary insurance, you are not eligible for the discount.

Please fill out all paperwork contained within the link (The Medicare contract is only necessary for Medicare patients)
