As primary care physicians, or PCPs, we are your first call for most medical issues. We provide both the first contact of our patient with an undiagnosed health
concern as well as continuing care of varied chronic medical conditions, not limited by cause, organ system, or diagnosis. We provide non-surgical treatment of common illnesses and medical conditions. Diagnostic techniques include interviewing the patient to collect information on the present symptoms, prior medical history and other health details, followed by a physical examination. We are trained in medical testing, such as interpreting results of blood or other patient samples, electrocardiograms, etc. After collecting data, we come up with a differential diagnosis and, with your participation, formulate a plan including (if appropriate) components of further testing, specialist referral, medication, therapy, diet, etc.
6 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY
Please note that we must charge when there is a late cancellation or "no show'. There can be no exception. We understand that people get stuck in meetings, forget appointments, have family emergencies, etc. In order to stay in managed care plans, employ staff to provide good service, and pay the rent, we must cover our overhead. We will try to accommodate you if you are late.We need enough office hour time to fill your spot, 6 hours! Leaving a message after hours wtth the service does not allow us to fill an open appointment before noon.
A 30-minute physical will be billed $100, and a 15 minute office visit will be billed $50. This is not re-imbursable by insurance. Once a spot is reserved, IT IS YOUR SPOT! We do not double book. We attempt to run close to schedule (though admittedly we often get behind when there are emergencies, patients arriving late, etc.)
