  1. Appointments

    It is our policy to see patients by appointment, except in cases of emergency. Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please notify our office. If you are having an urgent problem, please inform the receptionist and an appointment will be made as soon as possible. Every effort is made to see patients at their appointed time. Occasionally, surgeries last longer than anticipated and deliveries are unpredictable, which may result in an unexpected delay in your appointment. We appreciate your patience when these situations arise.

  2. Fees

    An estimate of charges for any visit or surgical procedure will be given upon request. Payment, including co-pays, is required for all office services at the time rendered. If you have questions regarding your account, please call our Insurance/Bookkeeping Department at 256-533-7423. All accounts which remain outstanding without explanation may be forwarded to the Credit Bureau for collection.
  3. Prescription Refills

    If you need a prescription refilled, please call your Pharmacist first. Their records will indicate if you have an authorized refill. If there are no refills, then please call our office during office hours. If the prescription can be refilled, we will call your pharmacy. We do not call in routine refills after office hours.
  4. Telephone Calls

    Our telephone hours are Monday - Friday, 8:15 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. Please call our office if you have any questions regarding your condition, medication or treatment. We are aware that any matter concerning your medical care is confidential; however, the phone receptionists need some specific information in order to properly route your call. Our medical staff is trained to answer questions, arrange prescription refills, and schedule appropriate appointments.
    Except in emergencies, the doctors do not leave their patients to answer phone calls. If you need to speak with the doctor personally, you may leave a message and your call will be returned when conditions permit, usually at the end of the day. If you have an urgent problem after hours, the answering service will take your phone number and a nurse or physician will return your call as soon as possible.
    In a TRUE EMERGENCY, it is best to go to the hospital Emergency Room. The physician on duty will begin treatment and contact our on-call physician.
