As my patient, you are not a number or a knee or a diagnosis. You have specific needs and concerns. You are my patient and will be well cared for. My staff and I strive to care for all of your musculoskeletal needs, aches and pains. I welcome you to see me for your knee, but also for your other needs as they arise over the years. If beyond my expertise, I will get you to the right physician. I have treated 1000’s of knee and shoulder problems, and have helped to direct many patients to all sorts of physician specialists, helping to diagnose cancers, cardiac problems, and more. My staff is always available to you. If you have an urgent need and find your way to an emergency room, please have the hospital contact me – don’t take NO for an answer–I am always on call for you.
For any questions or concerns relating to your insurance plan or current claims, please contact my office. To facilitate the smooth processing of your claims we ask that you keep a few tips in mind:
It is your responsibility to check your insurance benefits and to confirm whether Dr. Hacker is a participating or non-participating provider for your plan. We deal with hundreds of carriers and policies. Anything you can do to help us is appreciated.
If Dr. Hacker is not in your network, he is still happy to provide you with his consultation and surgical care. You may be subject to a higher or lower payment obligation according to the terms of your insurance contract. If this creates a financial hardship for you, please submit a request for special consideration of your financial obligation.
If you are bringing your child for a school related athletic injury, your school system may have an insurance policy on your child to help cover your claim. Please call your school system to check on any coverage you may have and please bring this information to your appointment, as well as any secondary insurance you may have on your child.
Dr. Hacker accepts essentially every PPO insurance plan, cash payments, and a few select quality HMO plans. Please phone the office at 619-462-3131 to find out if I am on your plan.
I provide consultation, injury prevention, treatment, surgery and rehabilitation to athletes of all ages and abilities in San Diego. Please remember that Dr. Hacker is unable to provide medical advice via email as limited by the HIPAA privacy act. Any medical advice can only be given in person. If you are in need of test results or other medical-related information contact Dr. Hacker’s office to set up an appointment.
