OFFICE POLICIES

APPOINTMENT POLICY

For the most part, all patients are seen in the office on an appointement basis, which can be scheduled by calling our office at 860-471-8030. All patients, must bring their insurance card(s) and a photo id for the appointment. We schedule appointments only for patients age 17 and above.  

CANCELLATION POLICY

Please call within 24 hours if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment. We understand unexpected circumstances may arise and in this event we do have a voicemail system where you are able to leave a message.This allows us to provide that time slot to another patient. 

AFTER HOURS

If an urgent problem arises, please call the office at 860-471-8030 and listen to the instructions on how to contact the oncall physician. Please reserve all after hours phone calls for situations that truly cannot wait until the office reopens. Prescription refills by phone calls or electronic refill requests will only be taken during office hours. As always in the event of an emergency please call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.  

RUNNING ON TIME

We know your schedule is busy and that your time is valuable. We strive to keep our wait times reasonable. Please keep in mind we do accomodate urgent cases that require attention which may dealy our schedules. In those circumstances we will inform you. Please remember we are running different schedules. If someone who arrived after you is called before you they might be having a quick nurse only injection or seeing a provider. 

CONFIDENTIALITY

All patient information and medical records are kept confidential. We have a HIPAA-compliant, state-of-the-art electronic medical record system. Which allows us to do multiple tasks within the office. We will only release your medical information to those parties to whom you wish it to be released. Which will be verified with your signed release forms. These forms can be found within our online Patient Forms section.   

PAYMENTS & FEES

Our office policy is to collect payment for services at the time of visit. This includes all co-payments. Charges for professional visits, procedures, medications and lab tests are determined based on the complexity of the problem. We have a minimum charge of $15.00 for forms that are to be filled out without an office visit.
