Appointments are scheduled during regular office hours. Please make sure you arrive at your scheduled appointment time. We have found that this provides the most convenient and best service for you. Unfortunately, unexpected emergencies can occur which occasionally cause delays in our schedule.
Please bring your current medications with you at the time of your appointment. This will assist us as we provide your medical care.
Since new patient appointments generally require more time than established patients, new patients should arrive 15 minutes early for their first appointment. Obtaining patient information, medical history, and the other pertinent information can be time consuming. Your help and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Please make every effort to keep your scheduled appointment. Due to our patient volume, a missed appointment will be rescheduled for the next available date which may be several months away.
If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, please call our office as soon as possible to cancel and reschedule another one. When you notify us, it gives us the opportunity to use the time for another patient who may need it.
We welcome and encourage you to call our clinic if you have a question. Please make non-emergency calls between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. When you call our clinic the switchboard operator will ask you a few questions so that we will know how to direct your call. Clinical questions will be directed to clinical staff. Phone calls will be returned as promptly as possible. Since the nurse may be busy assisting other patients and will have to consult with the provider, please allow the nurse sufficient time to return your call.
If you only received a diagnostic test, your physician will be notified of the results and will discuss the results with you at your next appointment. However, if you were not given a follow-up appointment, your doctor or a member of our staff will contact you with your results. PSA results will be available on a lab call system called Televox and on the Patient Portal. The results will be available 10-14 days after your appointment. You will be given instructions on how to use the system for retrieving your results prior to leaving the office.
Please contact your Pharmacist or use our Patient Portal to request any prescription refill(s) prescribed by our physicians. Please remember to request your refill(s) before you are completely out of medication. This will allow the pharmacist and our medical staff sufficient time to process your refill request. Due to new Federal Regulations some prescriptions cannot be refilled without a scheduled office visit. NO PRESCRIPTION REFILL(S) WILL BE CALLED IN AFTER BUSINESS HOURS, WEEKENDS OR HOLIDAYS."
There are basic fees for each office visit and additional treatment procedures. Charges for services will be submitted to your insurance plan; however, payment for services are ultimately the responsibility of the patient. We are in network (PPO) with most major insurance carriers and are required to collect any applicable co-pays and or deductibles at the time of your visit.
We accept the following insurances:
A billing statement will be mailed to you monthly showing your balance due. Telephone inquiries regarding your FINANCIAL account should be directed to the Billing Department at 601-898-7562. For your convenience, we have established VISA and MASTERCARD systems for payments. We also honor BANK DEBIT cards. If you need to make payment arrangements, please do so prior to your appointment; our office staff will be happy to assist you. Should you have financial problems that result in a payment delay, please contact us. We will make every effort to work out an acceptable payment plan to enable you to take care of your obligation. If all efforts fail, referral of your account to a collection agency may be necessary.
Please note that you may receive a separate bill from the various providers who render services to you, including the physician, the hospital, the radiologist and/or the anesthesiologist.
