Appointment Policy

In order for our physicians to give each of our patients their appropriate level of care, we ask that you arrive for your appointment on time.

New patients should arrive 40 minutes early to complete paperwork and verify insurance. Established patients should arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time. To save time, you can download all necessary forms from our website.

We follow the simple guidelines for the various appointment types:
Well-Care/Physical – Please allow at least 4 weeks to be seen
Consult – Pulmonary or Endocrine consult can be seen within a week. Sooner if there is an emergent problem.
Follow-up Visit – Allow 2 weeks to be seen Urgent/Sick Visit – Within 48 hours
Emergent Visit – Within 24 hours at the office ( Life threatening emergency should go directly to the nearest emergency room)

Please notify the front desk of any change to your address, phone or insurance coverage prior to your visit with the physician. We will do our best to verify your benefits so that you are aware of your financial responsibility.

Please pay your co-pay, co-insurance or outstanding balance prior to your visit with the physician.

If you have not been called in to see your physician within 20 minutes of your appointment time, please notify one of the receptionists. Please remember that we have numerous doctors working at one time and that patients are not taken out of order, but according to the individual physicians schedule. As a courtesy to our staff and other patients, we reserve the right to reschedule your appointment if you are more than 20 minutes late.

If your insurance has changed, please make sure to bring your new Insurance ID card and come in 30 minutes earlier than your appointment, so that we may verify your coverage. If you are late, we may have to reschedule your appointment. If for any reason you cannot keep your appointment, please call at least 24 hours ahead to reschedule or to cancel, out of courtesy to other patients who may need to be seen. No-show patients will be charged a fee.

If you are seeing one of our specialists, please bring all necessary referrals and tests results from your primary physician. If you choose one of our physicians as your Primary Physician, make sure that your insurance company has the correct information or has been informed of your election, prior to your appointment.
