HOURS AND APPOINTMENTS
Office visits are by appointment only. Our office hours are 8:00 a.m. until 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. Telephone hours are 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.
If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call as soon as possible so your appointment can be rescheduled and your time may be used for another patient. The time allotted for each appointment depends on the nature of your visit, so please give the receptionist enough information so she may assign the proper time and priority to your needs.
The receptionist will inform you if your doctor is delayed by a surgery or an emergency and will either reschedule your appointment or try to accommodate your visit with another doctor if this is acceptable. Should you find you have been waiting for more than 15 minutes, please check with the receptionist. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment you may have to reschedule.
All of your medical records are confidential, and no information is given over the telephone without your written consent. Your written authorization is required before your records will be released to insurance companies or others. There is a minimum $10.00 processing fee for reproduction and release of records.
If you have non-emergency questions, or are calling to get laboratory reports or a progress report on your condition, please call between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. when your medical records are readily available.
If you are calling for a prescription refill, please call during the telephone hours so we can check your records to make sure a refill is the best course of treatment. You also should have the name and telephone number of your pharmacy available before your call.
