Practice Policies

Please review our Practice Policies. If you have general questions, you can use our web site contact form, you can also call our office directly.

Appointments

We see patients by appointment only. Routine and annual appointments are generally scheduled a number of weeks in advance. Urgent needs can be accommodated within a day or two, and emergencies are seen immediately. If an urgent or emergency visit is necessary, you may be seen by someone other than your usual health care provider.

At your first appointment we will review your complete medical history and perform a complete examination. For a first pregnancy visit, this will also involve a discussion of many pregnancy-related issues. We encourage the presence of the husband at infertility consultations, and at least one family member at pre-operative consultations. A chaperone is available on request for all exams.

Although we work very hard at running on time, an OB/GYN practice is full of urgent and emergency problems, and even though we leave time in our schedules to accommodate such problems, we will sometimes be unavoidably late.

Please remember that your appointment time is valuable. If you are unable to make your appointment, please let us know with at least 24 hours notice so we may schedule someone else that needs care. You will receive an automated appointment reminder via email and telephone call two days before your visit.

Prescription Refills

Requests for prescription refills are renewed during normal office hours. Please call to inquire about refilling your prescription, do not fax a refill. In some instances, we may require that the patient be seen in our office prior to the medication being refilled. Please allow at least 24 hours for your request to be processed.

Non-Essential Appointments Cancelled

Due to COVID-19, we will be reaching out to you to reschedule any non-essential appointments (re: physicals, annuals, and other well visits) until further notice.

COVID-19 is causing things to change rapidly and our operations can vary because of this. We ask for your understanding and that you check our website for the latest on operational hours and services available.

You can also call ahead if you have questions.

We are proud of our staff who are working during this time, and pledge to you our highest service possible during this pandemic.


Patient/Visitor Guideline Update

In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and provide a safer environment and promote social distancing which is recommended by the CDC, we are asking that patients limit the number of people accompanying them to an appointment. No visitors (including children) will be allowed to accompany each patient unless a specific patient needs extra support. We encouraged visitors to remain closely connected to their loved ones through virtual means, including Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, and/or phone.

Additionally, we are respectfully asking that children not accompany any adult patients, unless there is a medical necessity. We know this may cause scheduling challenges, particularly for families with younger siblings, but we can all play a role in reducing the spread of this virus. Thank you for understanding our need to do so and for helping us keep you and our greater community healthy.

We are also asking any patients with a cough, shortness of breath or fever not to come to our facility and call ahead of time. You will be directed to another facility for evaluation.

All patients are to wash their hands before and after their visit. Hand washing, social distancing, and self-isolation are still the best ways to prevent this virus from spreading more widely.

We are committed to providing the best care to you and will continue to give you the best guidance we can.
