Please make sure that you arrive to the physician’s clinic at least 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time and bring your insurance card and medications that you are currently taking.
Do I need a referral to make an appointment?
No, you do not need a referral to make an appointment with any of our providers. We are currently accepting new patients. However, for your visit to be covered through your insurance please contact your insurance provider to understand the terms of your policy.
Do I need to have my blood pressure checked regularly?
It is recommended that your blood pressure be checked every two years after the age of 21. We also recommend annual check-ups with your primary physician after the age of 50 and frequent check-ups if you have additional risk factors. The most common risk factors for high blood pressure include family history, being overweight and having a high sodium or poor diet.
How will I pay for my care?
If you have insurance, please bring in your card and we will either collect your co-pay or bill you through your insurance plan. If you are not insured, we are happy to make payment arrangements with you. We strive to have all aspects of our practice, including our professional fees, reflect our ethical and rational approach to your care.
What is your cancellation policy?
We prefer at least 2 hours notice for an appointment cancellation to be able to reuse your time slot. Please be sure to contact us as soon as possible if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment.
How can I get a hold of my medical doctor?
We take pride in our doctor-patient relationships and schedule plenty of time for you to get all of your questions answered. If you need to get in touch with your medical doctor or physician assistant in between appointments, please contact our main office to leave a message or schedule an appointment.
