Saxum Medical Services was co-founded by Mercedes Nuncio, CEO and Ruben J. Almanza, M.D. Dr. Almanza is board certified in Family Medicine and has been in practice for the past 18 years.
"Saxum Medical Services was founded on the idea of eliminating the contractual requirements associated with healthcare insurance and subsequently, maximizing patient care. Saxum Medical Services is a direct-pay model that removes insurance companies from the relationship between patient and physician. By doing so, there are no third party insurance companies controlling a doctor's medical decisions. The patient’s best interest is our number one priority."
-Mercedes Nuncio co-founder and CEO
We do not accept any health insurances, however, we encourage our patients to have a health plan to cover catastrophic costs that are associated with hospitalization or surgery.
By eliminating insurance companies, we are able to minimize costs that are usually associated with billing and filling for the health insurance. In doing so, we can then pass on the savings to our patients.
