Once the enrollment forms are completed and returned to us, we will recommend one of our physicians to be your new personal family doctor. All routine visits will be made with your personal physician. For urgent, same-day visits, you might see one of our other doctors.

Advance Appointments»

Please call to schedule appointments as far in advance as possible. This will help us in scheduling a time that is most convenient for you. It is also important to tell the receptionist all of the medical concerns you wish to discuss with the doctor. This will ensure that you have enough time to discuss your concerns with your doctor.

Same-Day Appointments»

We reserve a number of office appointments each day for urgent conditions that must be treated immediately. If your medical condition requires an urgent visit, please call as early in the day as possible. For an urgent or same-day appointment, you may see a physician other than your personal doctor if he or she is not available.
