Please call your office for an appointment. Follow-up appointments are made before you leave the office. There are times when we may need to change your appointment due to an emergency. We are sorry for any problems this may cause.
For problems such as colds, flu or abdominal pain, we will try to see you the same day you call. Please call early in the day. If the provider you ask for is not here when you call and you need to be seen, one of our other providers will be glad to see you. Our goal is to make sure that all patients are seen as quickly as possible.
If you are late for your appointment, we may ask you to change to another time.
Your First Appointment
Your doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant needs to know about your health history to provide the best care for you. These forms will be mailed to you. If you do not get them before your visit, please come to the office 15 minutes early to complete the forms. Your first visit will include a review of your health history. Bring a list of any medicines that you are taking. Make sure we have any of your other medical records.
Canceling an Appointment
We know that things may happen that make it hard to keep your appointment. We do ask that you call our office to let us know the day before your appointment if you cannot come to the office when you are scheduled. This helps us to be able to see other patients who need to see the provider. If you don’t call and miss visits or call late several times we may ask you to find another doctor.
Children Under 18 Years of Age
A parent or guardian must come with any child under 18 years of age for their appointment or give permission for treatment. The parent or guardian can give permission with a letter or consent form. The child needs to bring the letter or consent form to the appointment. Consent forms are available at our office.
