Our office provides 24-hour coverage for emergencies. If you have an emergency during the day, please call our office immediately and give us your name and a description of the emergency. If an emergency arises at night or during the weekend, please call our office at 610-434-4760, and the physician on-call will be contacted. If you believe any delay in medical attention could result in a life-threatening situation, please go immediately to the nearest emergency room and notify our office as soon as you are able.
As your primary care physicians, we will coordinate your medical care. When you have health questions, please 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.
Many insurance plans require a written referral before seeing a specialist. We request at least 48 hours notice on all non-urgent referrals in order to obtain authorization and process referrals. Urgent care referrals will be authorized and processed as quickly as possible.
We cannot issue retroactive referrals for care already rendered. You may be responsible for fees if you see a specialist without obtaining a written referral. If you have any questions regarding referrals, please call our office – 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 or by Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card.
If lab studies are ordered for you, we will help you schedule a follow-up visit for the interpretation of the test results. Test results will not be given over the phone except for those patients with established treatment plans.
