If we are seeing you for the first time, you will fill out a comprehensive medical and drug history. Bring a list of ALL medications with doses and schedule, and always carry it with you.
Because we respect your time, we sincerely try to stay on schedule; however, occasionally we will experience unforeseen problems and emergencies. Whenever possible, we will keep you informed of any delays and will ask your preference of either waiting or rescheduling your appointment. To be fair to all patients, we ask that you give us at least a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel or change an appointment.
Many urgent problems can be seen in the office during regular office hours. However, should an emergency occur after hours or during the weekend, our answering service will take your information and immediately contact the physician or physician assistant (P.A.) on call. In the event of a life-threatening emergency, we urge you to call Emergency Medical Services at 911 or go directly to the closest Emergency Room.
Prescription medications will not be called in after regular business hours.
Please make your prescription and renewal requests during office hours when your chart is available. We are not able to call them in after regular business hours. If you call in your request, please have available the name of your medication, how you are taking it, and the name and telephone number of your pharmacy. For your safety, we cannot approve prescription renewals if you have not seen the doctor in our office within a three-month period or have not seen the doctor for any recommended follow-up care.
Call during office hours about any medical problems. Our office staff is trained to answer most of your questions and will relate your information to the physician. We will return your call at the earliest opportunity. If you must speak directly with your doctor, your call will be returned as quickly as possible between patient appointments.
