You may schedule appointments 24 hours a day seven days a week on our website. You may also call the office to schedule an appointment during regular business hours.
Our office is open Monday thru Thursday from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm and 9:30 am to 2 pm on Fridays by appointment only. If you need to stop by the office for any reason or outside our normal hours, please call ahead to make sure that we are available. Please do not show up unannounced at our office because it delays our ability to see patients that have office appointments. Patients being seen in the office will be assisted first. Please have a seat until our staff is finished with patients that have a scheduled appointment.
If you are experiencing a life threatening emergency, go to your nearest emergency room or call 911. If you have an urgent medical matter, you may call our office for a same day appointment during regular office hours. We do not provide emergency medical or hospitalization services. Contact your primary care physician immediately if you feel that you need emergency care or hospitalization.
If you desire to speak with our doctors outside of appointment times, you may schedule a phone consult that will be billed according to our office fee schedule at the same rate as it is if you were being seen in the office. Phone consults cannot be billed to insurance copies but offer convenience to patients that cannot travel to our office. Our staff can get answers to brief questions from our doctor at no cost if you have a simple question but complicated questions and medical advice can only be addressed during a consultation with our doctors.
We do not double book patient appointments, therefore, we require a 24 business hours cancellation notice to cancel all appointments. There is a cancellation fee for appointments not cancelled 24 business hours prior. If an emergency should arise, please contact us immediately to cancel to avoid a cancellation. If we are able to schedule another patient during your appointment time, no cancellation fee will be charged but you must notify us of your cancellation.
Please allow 48-72 business hours for your regular prescription refills. It may take a little longer on weekends and holidays. For all new prescriptions, you need to be seen in our office by one of our providers.
A prescription may be denied if you have not seen us recently or if laboratory testing is needed. This time frame may vary depending on the prescription medication that is requested. Ideally, we like seeing our patients every six to twelve months. This is to make sure that you are up to date on all your health issues and prescriptions. If you miss or cancel an appointment and then need a prescription refill as the result of this, there is a $50 prescription refill fee to process your request outside appointment times if you fail to keep your appointments. There is no fee for all prescriptions requested during appointment times so please bring in all your prescription bottles for the doctor to review during your appointment time to ensure that you have any medication until your next schedule appointment. If you require a prescription authorization from our office, your request should be made during your appointment time to avoid a processing fee.
