If you or other members of your family become ill, we will make every effort to see you as soon as possible. It is important that you call before coming to the office. If it is necessary for you to be seen by a doctor, this will help you to be seen more efficiently. If you are unable to keep an appointment for any reason, please call us to cancel as soon as possible so that other patients who need to be seen can be scheduled at that time.

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, medical emergencies may make it necessary to delay or reschedule your office visit. If rescheduling is unavoidable, a new appointment will be offered at the earliest convenience.
