Appointment Scheduling and What to Bring
Patients are seen by appointment only. To schedule your appointment, please call our offices Monday through Friday between 9 am and 4:30 pm:
You can also request an appointment using our easy online form.
We try to go by the patient’s appointment time and not the time the patient arrives. We will do our best to honor your appointment time. We realize your time is valuable; however, emergencies and other unexpected occurrences may cause unforeseen delays. If this does happen, we will try to inform you as soon as possible. Most days we have more than one physician seeing patients at the same time. While you are waiting, we may call on a patient who arrived after you. If this happens it usually means that this patient is seeing another doctor or receiving treatment. Please make sure you sign in when you arrive.
If this will be your first appointment, please complete our new patient forms before you arrive. For your convenience, you can download and print these forms here.
On your first visit, please arrive ten minutes early. Bring a list of current medications and copies of medical records such as CT scans, pathology reports or x-rays. Original films are not required—copies of the reports are all we need.
Phone Calls and Emergencies
If a problem arises during office hours, call one of our main office phone numbers:
The telephone can be an important link between you and your doctor. We welcome and encourage you to call the office if you have a problem, question, or need to get in touch with us for any reason. Please make non-emergency calls weekdays between 8 am and 5 pm, when your medical records are readily available. Our support staff consists of a nurse practitioner, oncology certified nurses and a pharmacist, all of whom are highly trained to answer many of your questions. If your concerns require the doctor’s direct attention, please be assured that he or she will return your call as soon as possible. If you have a medical emergency, please call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.
Refilling Prescription Medications
Between your visits to the office you may need your prescription medications refilled. For your convenience, you can fill and refill prescriptions at our on-site pharmacy. Please make all refill requests at least 2-3 days before your medication runs out. We must review your chart when refilling prescriptions; therefore, this service cannot be provided during weekend or evening hours. We understand that there will be emergency situations that arise; however, please make every effort to refill your standard prescriptions during regular office hours.
Test Results and Forms Requiring Physician Approval
Please call our office for all test results. Most results are available one week after the test is performed. Some of our doctors may prefer to have you come into the office to discuss your results.
We are aware that many patients are applying or currently on short- and long-term disability, and that most forms need to have physician approval. Please give our office a one-week time period to complete your request. We do understand that some forms will require immediate attention and we will do our best to accommodate you.
