Please schedule your appointment as far in advance as possible. When you call, please give the receptionist as much information as possible about your visit so she can schedule enough time during the visit to meet your needs. This information is kept confidential within our office.
If you need to cancel a visit, please provide as much notice as possible so we may schedule other clients as needed.
Let us know of changes in your address or phone number so that we can reach you as needed. Also, please notify us of insurance changes so that billing will be done correctly.
We respect your desire for confidentiality. We can't release any information regarding your care without your written consent. Only records generated in our office can be released. Please give us five working days to process your medical record requests.
