      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. What is an Internal Medicine doctor?

      Doctors of Internal Medicine focus on general adult medicine. They care for patients from the teen years through old age. Internists have special training that focuses on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. For more information visit www.acponline.org

      2. What is a Primary Care Physician and why do I need one?

      A primary care physician (PCP) is the first point of contact for a patient with a medical or health concern. He or she will educate, advise and guide you with all of your healthcare needs. Your PCP can be a doctor of Internal Medicine or a nurse practitioner who focuses on primary care. Having a PCP is important because he or she can determine when you need to see a specialist, help you find the right specialist, and coordinate all of your care. Some healthcare insurers require a referral from your PCP before you can see a specialist, which can take up to 48 hours for approval.

On your first visit, you will meet your physician, review your medical history and other information and have a physical exam. Please bring a list of any medications you are taking. A family member or caregiver is always welcome to come with you. Remember, however, that your physician may ask very personal questions. It is important that you answer these questions honestly and fully as the answers may have important implications for your care.

      8. What insurance do you accept?

      We accept most major health insurance and managed-care plans. Please familiarize yourself with your insurance plan, especially regarding co-pays, referrals, and emergency care. Be sure to bring your health insurance card, a picture ID, and your co-payment with you to every appointment as that will be requested prior to services rendered.

      We help treat acute problems such as coughs, flu, sore throats, stomach ache, sprains, and other common medical complaints.

If you have a medical emergency, you should go directly to the nearest emergency room or call 911.

      Patients who do not speak English MUST be accompanied by an interpreter who will have to sign a consent form allowing our doctors to speak with them about your health.

      For prescription refills, please call your pharmacy requesting the refill. They will electronically send our office your request. We require a minimum of 3 days to process prescription(s) renewal. For some medications, the refill process can take longer, so please plan ahead.
