Q: What time do I have to call to ensure I see a doctor?
A: Unfortunately patient demand exceeds our daily capabilities. Patient registration opens at 7am and we register patients in the order that voicemails are received. Lately, we have been full by 7:30am. So our suggestion is to call right at 7am.
Q: What if I need to see the Doctor in person?
A: Everything starts with a phone call. If you need to see the doctor in person, he will invite you down after he speaks with you.
