Although allergy shots
are given on a first-come first-serve basis, during the
allergy shot hours, all
other visits, including doctor visits, breathing tests, and allergy skin tests
require an appointment.
We try our best best to remain on
schedule, however, emergencies sometimes arise. If we are seriously delayed, we
will try to notify you immediately. Shot patients generally do not have to wait
more than five to ten minutes. We ask for your patience if you have to wait, we
know your time is valuable, and we hate to keep you waiting!
From the time of your first visit, we will establish a permanent record,
complete a brief history, and registration form. If at any time your personal
information, address, phone, employment, or insurance information changes,
please notify our receptionist as soon as possible. Please bring your
medications with you to each doctor appointment, if possible, especially if you
tend to forget their names or are on several of them. Although we welcome
children and spouses of patients, and realize that day care and bay-sitting are
not always available, patients tend to get a lot more out of their visit with
the physician if they are not distracted by very young children during the
visit. We kindly ask that you turn your cell phone off or on vibrate during
visits, and not use your cell phone when in the back office.
Very often, our physician schedule is so busy that appointments are
booked weeks in advance. We can generally see urgent or sick visits within 1-3
days, however, in respect for other patients needing an appointment, we ask that you
call us at least 24 hours in advance if you must cancel an appointment. A fee
of $25 will be charged to those patients not canceling at least the day before
their appointment, or not showing up for an appointment. If you cancel twice
in a row for an appointment, we ask for a $25 payment, to be applied to your
copay or deducible, before we can schedule a third time.
