Welcome to The Urology Place, Dr. Timothy Hlavinka!
We have been overwhelmed with the positive response from patients who would like to see our newest physician, Dr. Timothy Hlavinka. This is a testament to his incredible relationship with patients over his career and we are so excited to have him on board at The Urology Place. We also want to welcome you, his patients, to our practice.
Transitioning a physician into a new medical practice always takes a little time as we have to work with each insurance company to ensure he is listed, or credentialed, on all of our insurance plans. This credentialing process can take anywhere from 30-120 days depending on the insurance company. Thus, the following details should help give you guidance as to your options if you are seeking care with Dr. Hlavinka.
Medication refills and other urgent matters can be handled by submitting a request through the form on this page. We are checking this inbox daily and working to process refills within 24 hours whenever possible. We have been receiving hundreds of calls per day since his transition, and are working diligently to make sure we return every patient call.
If you are a patient looking to schedule an appointment, please leave us a message with details on your desired appointment date. We are working on his clinic schedule now and will update it as he is able to see patients with specific insurances. Dr. Naveen Kella, Dr. Hlavinka’s partner at The Urology Place, can see any patients needing an urgent consultation between now and the time the insurance companies complete credentialing for Dr. Hlavinka.
The Urology Place is in network with most insurance plans. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Humana Gold, Medicaid or Aetna. However, we do work with patients who want to see their doctor. We commonly see patients out of network or for competitive self-pay rates. Feel free to call us with your specific situation and we can walk you through your options.
Most of Dr. Hlavinka’s surgery cases are performed at St. Lukes Baptist or at Foundation Surgical Hospital. Foundation Hospital is a newer outpatient facility that consistently ranks highly in both patient and surgeon satisfaction surveys. Dr. Hlavinka is also credentialed at other hospitals across the city, including Methodist Healthcare and Christus Santa Rosa
