We will make every effort to respond before the end of the day. Please call at least 48 hours before your prescription runs out. Since your chart must be available for review by the doctor, no calls for prescriptions or re-fills will be taken after office hours.
While our physicians strive to remain on schedule, there may be times when they run behind schedule due to emergencies or unforeseen circumstances. We understand there may be times when you cannot wait if the doctor is behind schedule. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment if you so desire. Please speak with the receptionist to do so.
