With the increasing number of high deductible health plans and more of the costs of medical care being transferred to you, the patient, we are implementing a new patient payments program starting in 2017. This will be a convenient way for you to pay your portion of your care. We want to work with you to make it easier and more financially suitable to pay your medical bills.
As a convenience to you, we are offering Saturday appointments from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM for our established patients with urgent care needs. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins will also be accepted.
If you’d like to be seen on a Saturday, please call the office during regular business hours to schedule an appointment.
If scheduling ahead of time is not an option, established patients are welcome to walk in between 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
If you have a true medical emergency, please call 911 or report to the nearest Emergency Room.
According to the American College of Emergency Physicians, the following are warning signs of a medical emergency:
Misuse of prescription opioids, benzodiazepines, and stimulants is a serious public health problem in the US.
These statistics are startling, and in an effort to mitigate drug misuse, the government has increased regulations on physicians to promote more cautious and responsible prescribing. (See Georgia Administrative Code Rule 360-3-.06. Pain Management and Georgia House Bill 249 § 16-13-63. Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Data Base for more details.)
Your physician has developed a program to help monitor your medication usage and ensure that your treatment regimen remains appropriate, safe, and effective.
We will be happy to speak with you to schedule your appointment and answer any questions that you may have.
We appreciate the opportunity to provide you with comprehensive primary care.
