New PatientsWe would like to welcome you to our practice and introduce to you some guidelines that may be helpful in the future.
Please print and complete the registration and health history forms and bring them with you to your first appointment along with your insurance card and medications. We are aware that this will be time-consuming. However, this is an important part of your medical record, so please take time to fill it out thoroughly.
Emergencies: If you have an emergency after hours or on weekends, please call our office, and the answering service will connect you with the physician on call. Please call for refills during office hours.
Cancellation Policy: Please give us at least 24 hours of notice if you will be unable to make a scheduled appointment.
Payment Policy: In order to provide the best care possible, it is necessary that all payments be collected at the time of service. We will be glad to bill your insurance, but if you have a co-payment or unmet deductible, or are responsible for a percentage of the charges, please bring a form of payment with you to your appointment. We accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Visa.
Same-Day Appointments: If you have a problem that you feel needs prompt attention, please call our office as early as possible so we can best meet your needs. If you need to be seen the same day, we will try to accommodate you. Please try to call us before noon so we can make proper arrangements.
