Filling Out a Medical Form

Missed Appointments

Our goal is to provide patients with an appointment when they need it.  When a patient does not keep an appointment or "no shows", it takes away from another patient who needs to be seen.  Patients who no-show 2 appointments in a 12 month period will not be able to schedule appointments in advance.

Appointment options:

  • Advanced scheduling is available if you have not missed 3 appointments in a 12 month period.

  • After 6 months, if you have kept all your appointments, you may again schedule in advance.

  • Same-day appointments with your primary care provider, if possible, or with another provider

We understand there are reasons that may keep you from coming to your appointment. If you are unable to make your appointment: 

  • Call us. Your health is important to us. Call if you are unable to make it to your appointment.

  • We are happy to help. Tell us why you are unable to keep your appointment and we will work with you to find a solution.

Payment

Payment is required at the time of service and may be made by cash, check, money order, VISA, Discover, or MasterCard. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and are enrolled with many different HMO and private insurance plans. Our Patient Accounts Representative will complete and file insurance claims on your behalf. You are responsible for any unpaid balance or non-covered services.

 

Sliding Fee Discount

We currently do not offer a discount program. However, we are working to apply for grants and create a Health Foundation to service patients who need financial assistance. The sliding fee discount will allow uninsured patients to pay for services according to ones income level and family size. Please ask to speak us how you can help us develop this program.
