We respect our patients' time as much as our own and we do
not like to keep patients waiting unnecessarily.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to know how long each
appointment will last and our complete attention is focused on
each individual patient during his or her appointment.
Sometimes appointments, which last longer than expected or
emergency additions to our schedule, create unexpected delays
in the schedule. Although delays of that type are completely
unavoidable in a medical practice, you can be sure that the
entire staff is dedicated to running on time and most
importantly, we will focus our complete attention on you
during your examination.
Other than emergencies,
patients are seen by appointment only. Our office hours are
Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our
telephones are answered 24 hours a day. On rare occasions,
your call may be referred to another physician when our
physicians are away from the area.
For your convenience, you also may contact us from our contact page.
A staff member will contact you prior to your appointment in order to help you complete the registration process.
