Appointments/Office Hours

To schedule an appointment, please call either our office at the numbers above. Please give us your name and the reason for your call, and we will schedule an appropriate amount of time for your care. For your convenience, we see patients at the  times listed above.


After-Hours Calls and Emergencies

A physician is on-call 24 hours-a-day to respond to urgent medical needs. Call our office and the after-hours answering service will take your message. The on-call physician will promptly return your call. Please have the patient's information on hand.

For life-threatening emergencies, please call 911. The hospital physicians will then contact us.


Insurances/Referrals

As your primary care practice, we will coordinate your medical care. When you have health questions consult our office and we will guide you regarding appropriate medical treatment. We will refer you to a specialist for treatment when medically necessary and continue to coordinate your care with the consulting doctor.

If your insurance plan requires a prior written referral to see a specialist, you will be responsible for all fees if you access specialty care without the referral.

We are not able to issue retroactive referrals for care already rendered. If you have any questions regarding referrals, please call our office and we will be happy to help you.

Our office accepts most major insurance plans. Please check with our office for the list of plans in which we participate. Co-payments are not billable and therefore are due at the time of the office visit. Payments are accepted in cash, personal check, Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card.
