Day of Scheduled Appointment-All Patients

  • All patients are required to contact our office by phone upon arrival and wait outside of the office (in a car or a nearby location located outside of the medical office building) until we are ready to see you. We have reduced the number of appointments scheduled each day, so as to reduce patient wait times as much as possible.

  • Patients who have a body temperature of 100˚ F or higher will be required to reschedule their appointment for a different date and time.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding this policy. Thank you for your consideration and cooperation!
