Immediate Care (Sick) Appointments
Immediate care services are available for people with pressing medical problems that can't wait for a regularly scheduled appointment. These services are designed to help patients avoid long hours of waiting at the emergency room. During an immediate care appointment, the physician will address the specific problem that needs immediate care. Other health concerns may need to be addressed at a subsequently scheduled appointment.
The clinical staff and the physician in consultation with the patient determine the need for immediate care services. On occasion, our physicians may feel that problems are too urgent and complex to be handled in the office. In these cases, patients will be directed to the emergency room for evaluation.
In the event of a life-threatening, medical emergency, please call 9-1-1.
A medical emergency is the sudden and unexpected onset of a serious condition. Examples are chest pain, severe shortness of breath, disorientation, severe illness or loss of consciousness.
After you have called 9-1-1, call our office. The physician on call will direct you further and follow your immediate care needs.

For primary care patients, most referrals originate in our office and must be approved by one of our physicians. The doctor may ask to see you first before referring you to a specialist.
We require at least 72 hours for non-emergency referrals. Please call the office with your request during regular office hours and have your insurance information available. After three business days you may pick up your referral, or we will mail it to your home.

Have ready the name and phone number of the doctor, the diagnosis with IDC-9 code if available and the number of visits required, as well as where the procedure is expected to take place.
Referrals are valid for only a specific period of time. Please check with your insurance company for specific instructions regarding coverage.
