Patient Information

Phone Calls

Due to the high volume of calls, often you will reach our voice mail system. We assure you that all voice mailboxes are checked regularly and calls are returned promptly and appropriately during business hours.

Effective January 5, 2015, the phone lines for all offices will be open to accept calls from 8:00 am - 4:00pm.  

To ensure that your needs are met expeditiously, please leave a complete message including your name, date of birth, your provider, your reason for calling, and a contact number so we can return your call. Please note that any medical questions must be forwarded to the provider for review. Since our provider may be busy with patients during the day, it may take some time to reply to your question.

The best time to call is Tuesday through Thursday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Your Medical Records

Secure and reliable access to our patients' medical records is available through our on-line electronic medical records system.
The relationship between the doctor and patient is private and any information exchanged will be held in the strictest of confidence. Confidential medical information will be released only with the express consent and authorization of the patient.

Appointment Cancellations

If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, we require a minimum cancellation notice of 24 hours. Please remember that confirmation reminders from us are only a courtesy. Our failure to confirm your visit does not relieve you of your responsibility to cancel your appointment.
