We are a family practice treating patients of all ages - newborn to geriatric. Our physicians and nurse practitioners are highly skilled and will treat you in the most professional manner. Below are a few of the policies governing our practice and the treatment of our patients.
Our main office number is (757) 873-2000. Our phones are on Monday - Friday from 8:30 AM until 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM. We turn the phones over to a message from 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM for lunch. We do not have voice mail or the ability for patients to leave a message.
If you need to contact us and are having trouble getting through on the phones we encourage you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may request refills, cancel appointments or leave a message for us to contact you simply by emailing us.
If you need to cancel an appointment after hours, we have an answering machine to take messages after hours for cancellations only. The number for after hours cancellations is (757) 223-4091. Please do not leave any other messages at this number. You may also fax us a message at (757) 873-2003.
We attempt to call all our patients two days prior to their scheduled appointment to remind them of the appointment time. We request that you leave a number where you can be reached in the daytime, either a cell phone or work number. We do this as a courtesy to our patients, but it is the patient's responsibility to remember their appointment date and time.
If you fail to contact us to cancel an appointment prior to your appointment date and time, a no-show fee of $25.00 will be added to your account. If you fail to cancel an appointment for a physical, the fee will be $50.00. Please be sure to let us know 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel. This cancellation will allow us to schedule acute patients that need to be seen on the same day in the open slot.
