Acute care

Learn about our open access scheduling which gives us the flexibility in our appointment schedules to allow us to see patients in a timely manner.

We use an appointment scheduling process called open access that allows us flexibility in the providers' schedules to accommodate urgent needs. Our physician assistants and nurse practitioner assist in managing many of the acute, urgent illnesses of our patients. Our aim is to provide an appointment for any patient requesting to be seen as soon as possible.

It is our philosophy that treatment over the telephone is not effective in most cases. We ask that you come into the office to be checked before treatment.
