What is your cancelled appointment policy?

If you must cancel your appointment, we’ll be happy to reschedule at a more convenient time. We ask you to give us 24 hours advance notice, providing an opportunity for another patient to been seen.

What are your billing requirements?

Patients must pay any co-payments at the time of their visit. Patients are responsible to pay any amounts, such as deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance that their insurance company designates is their responsibility. To help facilitate making these payments, we offer an online bill pay option.

What do I do if my prescription runs out before my next office visit?

Renewals requested at other times will be filled only for extreme or emergent circumstances.
