OFFICE POLICIES

Appointments

Patients will be seen by appointment only. Same day appointments may be made available in the event of emergency. To schedule an appointment, call 405-400-1152. We ask that all minors have a parent and/or legal guardian present at all appointments.

After-Hours, Emergency, and Holiday Coverage

Our regular office hours are Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. If you are calling after-hours about a matter that does not necessitate immediate attention please leave a voicemail and we will return your call as soon as possible. However, if you are suicidal, fear that you will do harm to yourself or others, suspect you are having a severe allergic reaction to a medication, or face a life-threatening emergency, please call "911" or go to the nearest emergency room. You should instruct the emergency room to notify your provider. For the sake of continuity of care, we ask that you bring any discharge instructions or medication adjustments to your next appointment.

Use and Disclosure of Health Information for Treatment and Payment:

We may use or disclose health information in order to provide and coordinate your health care, or obtain payment for health care services.

Payment

Payment, including insurance copayments and deductibles, must be provided at the time of service. Please be aware that services provided may not be covered by your insurer, but you are ultimately responsible for payment of all services rendered. Any balance that remains outstanding for more than 90 days may be referred to a collections agency.
