Fees and Insurance
Our fees are the usual and customary fees for this locale. We strive to keep our charges as low as possible. We request payment at the time of service by cash, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. We also accept Medicare assignment and bill Medicare and supplemental insurance carriers for you.
PPO, HMO, and other managed care patients must identify themselves by presenting a valid and current ID card at check-in. Patients are responsible for all co-payments and/or deductibles at the time of the visit.
Medical care is not complete until the results of tests are transmitted to the patient. For this reason, we have developed several methods to efficiently communicate examination results.
- Formal written letter for complex issues
- Phone call for urgent messages
- Personal consultation with physician when needed
- Referral to sub-specialties
The most accurate results possible are assured through high technology quality control measures and experience.
Access to X-ray, EKG, ultrasounds, labs, stress tests, and minor surgical procedures are available on-site.
In addition, we also offer therapeutic services including physical and I.V. therapy.
Our policy is never to release patient information without written permission from the patient. We will copy appropriate records and forward them to the insurance company. We also send records to your primary physician’s office for follow-up.

What People Say About Us
We have been going to Medical Pavilion Clinic, office of Dr. David Ballestas, since 2004! In my opinion he is a great doctor, he goes out of his way to help his patients get the proper medical care. The clinical and front office staff are also kind, caring and professional.
I was seen quickly on a holiday weekend and for a reasonable price. The staff was friendly, listened to my complaints, my symptoms were evaluated, and i was offered not only an appropriate treatment, but the NP also referred me to a pharmacy that saved me well over $100 just on my prescription that day. I was home in less than an hour and a half with my prescriptions. I will now use this clinic for all of my primary care needs.
LOVE THIS OFFICE!!!!! Quickest, most courteous, general medical service in Charlotte County! Dr.Ballestas is awesome! His staff is perfect. Both the Doctor and his team are not only professional, they are empathetic and go above an beyond for their patients.
