Make An Appointment Online

Someone from our office will approve the appointment and you should receive a confirmation email and phone call. Please call us back to confirm the appointment.

We collect a $60 reservation fee that is applied to your deductible or copays for future visits. The reservation fee is applied to any no show or same day cancellation fees. The $60 fee is non-refundable.

It is the patient’s responsibility to check with his/her insurance plan to make sure we are contracted. We do our best to verify insurance but it is ultimately the patient’s responsibility.

If you have any questions, please call (602) 363-1631 and we will try to help you.

Appointment Information

Please note that we have a 24 hour cancellation notice. If you are cancelling an appointment for Monday, we must receive notice by 5 pm on Friday. By scheduling an appointment with us, you agree to our cancellation policy and no show policy.

If you need to call and cancel within 24 hours, we have a $30 Cancellation Fee. NO SHOW appointments result in a $60 Fee.

For New Patients, please Check-In 30 minutes early to fill out New Patient Paperwork and have your insurance verified.

For Ehlers-Danlos/Connective Tissue patients, please check in at least 60 minutes early or have all the paperwork filled out prior to your visit.

While we do our best to run on time, we must sometimes accommodate for patient emergencies. Please understand that we will try our best to keep the schedule running on time. If you require more time with the provider, please schedule accordingly.

While we try to address all of your complaints in a problem-focused visit, we often times can not be as thorough.

We request that you limit your issues to no more than 3 separate problems in a given visit. Depending on the complexity of the problems, we may need to see you back for additional visits.

Please note that due to insurance restrictions, we can not address problems or refill medications at a Wellness Visit. If prescriptions are made or problems addressed, a separate Problem-Focused exam will be billed in addition to a Wellness Visit. If you have questions regarding this, please ask.
