You will be able to see me on the same day or within 24 hours of your call. Your appointment time will be honored and you will be seen promptly, in an unhurried fashion. I intend to ensure there will be ample opportunity to address your medical needs at each visit. In general, your annual wellness exam will be 60 minutes and all other appointments will be 30 minutes in length.
During office hours, my staff will answer your calls directly and will assist you with your needs. I encourage my patients to call with any questions or concerns regarding their health. If consultation with me is needed and I am unable to take your call immediately, I will return your call promptly. After office hours or on weekends and holidays, you can reach me directly on my cell phone for urgent issues at any time of the day or night whether you are at home or traveling.
During my occasional absences from the office, a trusted colleague is available for urgent issues.
If a parent opts to join my personalized care practice, I will be happy to care for his/her dependent children up to the age of 26 without an additional annual fee.
Should a family member or friend who is visiting you become ill during their visit, I will be happy to offer prompt medical care as though they were a member of my practice.
I will serve as your wellness advocate and healthcare partner by working with other medical specialists involved with your care. As appropriate, I will accompany you to your specialist visits.
