Appointments

Our goal is to treat our patients with respect and courtesy. We try to stay as close to scheduled appointment times as possible and ask for your understanding if your appointment is at all delayed. The practice of medicine is unpredictable, and sometimes our schedules are interrupted due to other patient’s medical needs. 

Preparing For Your Visit

  • We see patients by appointment only and as such are unable to see other family members at the time of your appointment unless previously arranged.
  • Please call in advance to schedule routine appointments.
  • Requests for urgent appointments will be accommodated as quickly as possible.
  • If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment please notify us 24 hours in advance.
  • Please bring all medications, pills, creams, inhalers, and over-the-counter medications you are currently taking to your appointment.
  • Please check in when you arrive. We ask that first-time patients arrive 15 minutes early to complete new patient paperwork.
  • We ask that you bring your current insurance information and card to assist us in proper billing.

Test results

We will contact you regarding your test results either by mail or telephone. Test results requiring any follow up, recommendations, or changes may require an office visit. Because your medical information is by law yours alone, we cannot share it with anyone other than you without written authorization. 

Prescription Renewals

Whenever possible please request prescription refills during your office visits. If you require a prescription refill between appointments, please provide a 48 hour notice. If you have not been seen recently, an office visit may be required before your medication can be refilled.

Most pharmacies have an automated telephone line that you can call to request additional refills even if your prescription bottle indicates that no refills remain. Your pharmacy will fax a request or send an electronic request directly to the physician to authorize additional refills to your doctor. A call to the office is not necessary unless your pharmacy is unable to accommodate this service.

If you call the office, please be prepared with the following information when requesting a prescription refill:

  • Pharmacy name, address and phone number
  • Medication name, dosage and directions
  • Phone number where you can be reached

Prescriptions may not be refilled by phone after hours or on the weekends, so please plan accordingly.

Members of our Internal Medicine physician team have trained and worked in top medical schools and facilities throughout the U.S. and the world—and have decades of combined experience in a variety of specialty areas.
