Emergency situations are given immediate attention. We provide 24-hour physician coverage for emergencies. After regular office hours, call the office number and you will be given instructions on what to do. The on-call doctor will return your call if requested. In extreme or life-threatening emergencies, please call 911. When you arrive at the hospital, identify yourself as our patient.
Our office has a prescription refill line for medications that are taken on a regular basis. We ask that you call 371-4647 at least 48 hours before your medications are needed. Please leave a message following the instructions on the voice mail to include your name, date of birth, medication, dosage, and the name of your pharmacy. You may have to come to the office to pick up a written prescription. Please call during regular office hours for prescription refills unless it is an emergency.
We will notify you of all abnormal lab and x-ray results. If you have an appointment scheduled shortly after your test, we will go over the results with you during your office visit. We may also contact you by phone or mail. If you have not heard from us within two weeks of your test, please feel free to call our office.
Our practice requires payment at the time services are rendered. We will direct bill to Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare, Medicaid, MVP, and Cigna. We may bill other insurance companies as a courtesy to our patients; however, payment is ultimately your responsibility. We do offer a Financial Assistance Plan for those who qualify. Co-pays are due at time of service.
