IMPORTANT! Due to the COVID-19 situation, our office hours have changed. The Health Park office is open Monday 8am-7pm, Tues-Fri 8am-5:30pm, while the East Paris office is open M-F 7:30am-5:30pm.

Now offering telemedicine: See your doctor online! Our doctors are now offering TeleHealth services via Doximity. For Doximity, click here to learn how to prepare for your call. 

Patients are seen by doctors on a scheduled basis, with a number of open appointments for urgent care. Our Nurse Practitioners have open access and are available to see you if an urgent need arises. Because of the volume of urgent problems that arise, non-urgent and routine examinations often are scheduled several weeks in advance. Please plan ahead if you want to schedule a particular date.

Our East Paris lab is open for walk-ins Monday-Friday 8am-4pm. Appointments are available for 7:30am and 7:45pm.

Our Health Park lab is open for walk-ins Monday-Thursday 8:00am- 3:30pm, and Friday 8- 11:30am.

If you are unable to keep your appointment or are going to be late, please call us as soon as possible. This courtesy enables us better to serve all our patients. We may charge for missed appointments at our discretion, unless canceled at least 24 hours in advance. The rate is $25.00 for a missed office visit and $50.00 for a missed physical. Please help us to serve you better by keeping your appointments. We respect your busy schedules, so we try to be punctual with patient appointments. However, emergencies do occur. Please feel free to check with our staff to see if we are experiencing any delays due to emergencies. In such an event, we will offer you the opportunity to reschedule your appointment at the earliest available time.

Ways to Request an Appointment:

Call 616-459-3158 or fax 616-988-0071, or use our patient portal.

 

Emergencies

Our office provides for physician availability 24 hours a day, every day of the year. However, after office hours, the physicians are not routinely at the office, hospital or emergency facility and are, therefore, to be called for EMERGENCIES only. Emergency availability is provided as a medical necessity in addition to normal work hours.

AT ALL TIMES, CALL (616) 459-3158. The answering service takes your call and pages your phone number to the doctor available. A call will be returned to you as soon as possible. In the event of a severe medical emergency, seek immediate attention at an emergency facility. Non-emergent calls after hours may result in a charge.

 

Nurse/Clinical Visits

Blood pressure checks, flu shots, allergy and other injections that can be provided by the clinical staff Monday – Friday 8:20 AM – 12:20 PM and 1:20 PM – 4:20 PM. Call 616-459-3158 to schedule your appointment before you come to the office.
