Patient Information 

Prescription and Refills:
Prescriptions and refills requests should be completed during a regular office visit. Refills can be handled over the telephone during regular office hours when the patient's chart and information are available to the physicians and staff. Please allow us 48 hours to fill this request. Providing prescriptions and refills over the phone after hours is discouraged due to the inavailability of your medical records. 

We will schedule all appointments according to the patient's needs. Some insurance plans require a referral by the primary care physician before the appointment is made. We will do our best to follow these requirements, but it is the patients responsibility to know the requirements of their particular insurance plan. Due to the nature of our speciality, there may be emergency appointments that can lead to unscheduled delays. We will keep you informed of delays and reschedule appointment as necessary.

What to Bring to Your Appointment: 
1. All of your prescription medication 
2. Current Insurance Information cards 
3. your drivers license or state ID  
4. Your Insurance Copay

Insurance Procedures: It is the responsibilty of the patient to pay for medical treatment. We will file insurance claims as a courtesy and we are participating providers for Medicare, Medicaid and many PPO, HMO and Major insurance programs. We ask that you provide us with the current and accurate information about your insurance coverage so that we may process your claims correctly. We realize that medical care can be quite expensive and that patients are frequently out of work due to their illness. 
If you anticipate financial hardship, please discuss this and to make appropriate arrangements prior to your appointment please call the office location you have your appointment scheduled. We accept cash, check, Visa and Mastercard.
