Patients are charged $50.00 for missed appointments unless the appointment was cancelled 24 hours or more in advance. Insurance will not pay a missed appointment charge for you, so please make every effort to inform us 24 hours in advance if you are unable to keep your appointment.
PRESCRIPTIONS & REFILLS
New prescriptions usually require an office visit. Your physician will give you an electronic or written prescription unless you prefer to have it called into your pharmacy. Please be advised, you will need to provide the name and phone number/fax number of the pharmacy. Please allow 48 hours (2 business days) for prescription refills. Please note, that we will only provide enough of your medication refill until your next scheduled appointment with your physician.

However, we cannot guarantee payment by your insurance company or the accuracy of the information they have given to us.
