Please bring your current insurance to your appointment. While we do accept most commercial insurances, it is best to reach out to your insurance to ensure we are in-network with your specific plan.
Confirming Appointments, No Show Fee Policy, and Late Arrival
As a courtesy to our patients, we confirm appointments two days prior to the appointment. If you are unable to make your appointment, we require a 24-hour notice. If you miss your appointment, you will be charged a $50.00 no show fee that will be your responsibility and cannot be billed to your insurance. If you have three or more no show fees, we will no longer see you as a patient and will send your medical records to another office of your choice.
If you are late to an appointment, it puts providers behind schedule for those who are on time. Therefore, in consideration of other patients, if you are 15 minutes late we may ask you to reschedule your appointment.
Types of Appointments
Preventative Exam (Physicals and Well Child Checks)
A preventative exam is a yearly, prevention-focused appointment. The purpose of this appointment is to help prevent illness and detect health concerns early. This does NOT include addressing current or new problems, chronic conditions, procedures or injections, new problems identified by the provider, or medication management.
Annual Wellness Visit (Medicare Patients Only)
Regular Medicare does NOT cover the typical physical. Instead Medicare provides for and covers an Annual Wellness visit for their members which is essentially only a questionnaire – a conversation between the patient and provider.
An office visit is problem-focused appointment used to address new or existing health problems or symptoms. In this appointment, your provider may order tests, prescribe medication, refer you to a specialist, or provide advice and education.
