Making an appointment is as simple as picking up the phone and calling our office. Our services are available to all who seek them. You may become our patient either by making the appointment yourself or through a physician referral. We also welcome the opportunity to provide second opinions. We know how stressful initial diagnosis is, and we strive to keep waiting time for an appointment to a minimum. Be assured that our exceptional physicians will do their very best to help you.
We accept most insurance carriers, and our staff will work with you before you come in for your appointment to ensure that you will have the coverage you need. We all try to help eliminate the worry, so you can concentrate on getting well.
We strive to keep waiting times to a minimum, but please realize that delays can occur due to emergencies and unforeseen patient needs.
We ask that you always:
If you are ill and not feeling up to getting a treatment, call the nurse only if you are too ill to come in. Many times the symptoms are related to your treatment and we will want you to come in for assessment regardless. Keep the appointment if at all possible.
Reports on CT Scans or PET Scans
We try to schedule your testing as close to the doctor appointment as possible to avoid long waits for the results. The nurses will not give out CT results unless the physician has directed them to do so. It is always best to get the results of your tests when you can go over all results and a plan of care with the physician.
Results of Lab Work
All lab work is screened by the nurses daily. If your lab counts are out of range, requiring additional treatment, a nurse will contact you. You may be asked to wait for the results if we think you may be needing additional treatment that day. Results of lab work, tumor markers, etc., will be discussed with you at the next office visit. If you have lab drawn at another facility, please bring copies of those lab results with you to your next office visit.
Disability and Family Medical Leave Forms
These forms can be dropped off at the Nurses Station. Please allow 3-5 business days for the forms to be returned. Make sure your name is on all the forms and we have information on your last date of work. You may pick up completed forms or we can mail them to you at your home address. We do not mail forms to a third party.
