APPOINTMENTS

We respect our patients' time and pride ourselves in creating as fluid and convenient of a patient experience as possible without sacrificing quality of care.  As such, patients are seen by appointment only.   We do set aside a few same-day appoint-ments for our sick patients. Sick patients needing to be seen must call ahead to be scheduled for a same-day (or sometimes next-day) appointment based on availability.
