Our Staff
The staff of the Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center / Diabetic Foot Center are well trained with the experience of thousands of patient visits each year and almost 30 years combined experience. More importantly, they are friendly and understand a patient’s need for kindness and compassion. They will try to make every effort to reduce the stress of your visit. In the event that surgery or hospital admission is necessary, the staff will take care of all pre-authorization’s and schedule all testing as necessary.







 
 
Appointments
Every effort will be made to see you at the time of your appointment. We understand that no one likes to wait. Occasionally we are delayed due to unpredictable problems of other patients. In addition, patients that require immediate emergency care will be worked in with the regular appointments as necessary. If you cannot keep your appointment, please notify us 24 hours in advance. This courtesy on your part makes it possible for us to give an appointment to another patient that may need to be seen. As a service to all of our patients the scheduling staff will contact patients the day prior to an appointment to remind them of their appointment time.
 

Hospital Affiliations

Emergencies
If you need attention after hours, Dr. Cohen or Dr. Gaughan can be reached by calling the office number. The answering service will notify him immediately. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
 
Medical Insurance
Our centers participate with most insurance companies. We are a Medicare and Medicaid provider. Dr. Cohen and Dr. Gaughan are on the panel of all major PPO and managed care contracts including Blue Care Network, Health Plus, Blue Choice, Community Choice, Great Lakes Health Plan, Aetna Managed Care, Workman’s Compensation, and Auto Insurance plans. If you do have an HMO that requires a referral, we ask that you make sure to obtain this prior to your first office visit from your family doctor. If you have any questions just contact our office and our staff can provide some assistance. Dr. Cohen and Dr. Gaughan are also available to provide second opinions, which may be required by your insurance company. For your convenience, our billing company will file all insurance forms electronically, (even the secondary claims).
 
Referrals
