Appointments – Our office is open 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM daily Monday – Friday. Routine physicals and chronic illnesses/medication refills are seen by appointment. Acute appointments can be scheduled for same day. When making your appointment, the office staff will need a brief description of your symptoms in order to ensure we have the capability to address your symptoms fully. If several family members are ill, an appointment will be needed for each family member. For acute appointments, we will not be able to address chronic medical problems and refills during these appointments.
We strive to see every patient at their appointment time. In order to do so, we encourage everyone to show up at their appointed check in time. We do get behind schedule at times because of emergencies or because a patient needs more time than anticipated. Please understand that you, yourself, may have an emergency or need extra time someday.
For routine appointments, medication refills, or physicals, we recommend scheduling your appointment weeks in advance. If you have multiple issues you would like to address, please write them down in order of importance so the physician and patient can decide together what is most important to address. If you need medication refills, please bring the list of medications you will need refilled.
Allergy shots – Patients receiving allergy shots should coordinate with the office staff for a nursing visit. We perform allergy shots between 8:30 am till 11:00 am and from 1:00 pm till 2:45 pm. Because of the possibility of reactions, patients are required to remain in our office for 20 minutes after receiving an allergy shot.
