My office does SAME DAY scheduling of appointments. I ask that you call early in the morning of the day you wish to be seen in order to schedule your appointment time. My staff begins answering the phone at 8:30 AM to schedule appointments. Whether you are coming for a well or sick visit I will do my best to see you the same day.
I have implemented this scheduling policy so that you do not need to wait weeks for an appointment. I hope you find this method a positive one. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
