Topic 1
To have a prescription refilled, please have your pharmacy fax a refill request to us at (208) 523-8746. Should you have an urgent need for medication, contact my nurse , Charles, at (208) 523-3373 ext. 1175.
Topic 2
If you need to cancel an appointment, please call us at (208) 523-3373. Try to give 24 hours notice. Thanks!
Topic 3
When you have an appointment scheduled with me, that is who you will see. If you need to schedule an appointment urgently and I am not available, the front desk may ask if you would like to be seen by another doctor or a nurse practitioner. This often makes it possible for you to be seen sooner. However, if you are not comfortable with that, check with my nurse, Elaine, and she will look for a hole in my schedule for you.
Topic 4
Most medical specialists will accept only referred patients. This is mainly to try to ensure that the specialist you are seeing is appropriate for you and your condition. I do see self referred patients. Check with your insurance company to see if a referral is necessary for your visit.
Topic 5
For your initial consultation you will need to bring a referral letter from your physician, if necessary. Here is check list for your initial consultation: Driver's License or a valid ID, Insurance information,Referral Letter (if required),Reports, X-rays, MRI's, CT scans etc. and any other relevant information, List of medications (if any).
