The office offers same day appointments for illness, however, if you are having an urgent issue, please call the office directly to set up an appointment vs. scheduling on line.
Scheduling appointments on line correctly:
The following appointment types need to be scheduled directly with the office as we need additional information: annual physicals, hospital follow-up visits, pre-op exams. When scheduling on line, please be sure you use the drop down menu and pick the correct symptoms to communicate to the office why you are coming in for a visit.

Verified Patient Reviews
Being that it was my first visit I felt a but rushed. Yes, she addressed the problem at hand, but being that I had not had a physical in years, I would think she would have wanted to be a little more therough. She did not even ask about my family history, which I found odd. I tried to tell her that both of my grandparents had thyroid issues and it was unable to be detected, but it seemed as if she did not hear me, or did not want to know about it. she sent me for labs across the street and than said she is booking physicals in Novemeber. It is May. I am a little concerned that this doctor is so busy I may never get into see her if a real problem arises. I will see about going back to her.
On-time, never felt rushed, took her time reviewing symptoms and answering my questions. Great experience overall.
