If consultation with another specialist is needed, we will arrange the referral and coordinate your care with other health care providers.

Make an appointment

  • For illnesses and injuries, we can help you determine if your problem can best be cared for in our clinic or the Emergency Department.
  • Before coming to the clinic for laboratory work, a blood pressure check, allergy shot or other services, please let us know when you'll be coming so we can have your chart ready and minimize your wait.
  • If your provider recommends a follow-up appointment, please try to schedule the appointment before leaving the office.
  • If you must cancel an appointment, please give us a 24-hour notice so we may use that time for someone else.

Get help after clinic hours

Our telephone is answered 24 hours a day for your family’s urgent medical needs. If you need to reach a provider after office hours, call our office and the answering service will contact the on-call physician. We appreciate your consideration in avoiding unnecessary after-hours calls for routine matters that can be handled during clinic hours when your provider and complete medical history are available.

Refill your prescription

We handle calls for routine prescription refills during office hours. Please keep track of your prescription quantity so you can notify us a few days before running out.

When you call, provide:

  • The name of your medicine
  • The dosage
  • How often you take it
  • The name of your pharmacy

If your provider has prescribed medicine for a designated amount of time, you may need to make an appointment to ensure the medicine is working properly, without side effects or complications.‚Äč
