There are times when patient is either unable to come to the office for evaluation or need care outside of usual office hours. In such cases, if appropriate a telephone consultation will be performed. This includes assessment of the health condition over the phone, accessing & reviewing of medical records, creating a plan of care, sending in prescription to your pharmacy (if needed) and appropriate documentation. Consultation fee will be dependent on the time/effort needed and will be billed directly to you (most insurance company does not cover such services). Telephone consultation fee may be waived if patient is able to come for office evaluation next business day.
Please note that telephone consultation is not a substitute for office evaluation. Please make an appointment to see me or go to immediate care center if expected course is not followed or you have any concerns.
