PATIENT EDUCATION

OFFICE HOURS:
Our office hours are from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday Through Friday, and we close for the following holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Day After, and Christmas Day.

For health and safety reasons we discourage patients from bringing children into the exam rooms as we do not have staff available to watch them during your visit.

INSURANCE:
To see if we participate with your insurance plan, please contact our main office at 941-629-5757 or visit your insurance carriers web site for a list of participating physicians.

APPOINTMENT/CANCELLATION POLICY:
Premier Medical takes pride that virtually all of our patients are seen on or very close to their scheduled time. To do this, we normally treat patients with a scheduled appointment.

When an unexpected problem arises, please call our office first, rather than “walk-in” unexpectedly. But if circumstances present where you do “walk-in”, we will schedule you with a provider in the first available slot.

Depending on the immediacy of your needs and the schedule of your primary doctor, it may be necessary to see one of the other doctors or our Nurse Practitioners. Our nurses and schedulers will always take the utmost of care to ensure you’re examined promptly. Regardless of who conducts the exam, your primary doctor is always apprised of your condition and treatment.

Make sure that you arrive in the office 10 to 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Bring a photo ID, your insurance cards, and your payment for our services. If you do happen to arrive late, we may need to re-schedule you or see a different doctor in the next available time slot.

You will receive a “reminder call” for any scheduled appointment with a doctor. If you need to change or cancel an appointment, we do ask that you provide us with at least 24 hours advanced notice.

TEST RESULTS:
To ensure all test results are given in an accurate and timely manner, Premier Medical Group stays equipped with all the latest Medical Software available.

In October of 2007, Premier converted to Electronic Medical Records. This ensures that your orders and results are available in a timely manner to your physician who will, with a staff nurse, provide timely and accurate information to further your continuing care.

All facilities are modern, comfortable facilities with excellent physicians on staff, the latest in medical technology, and the services you would expect.

Besides these medical facilities, we sometimes refer to other area hospitals from Tampa to Fort Myers. And if your condition is such that a specialized national center would best serve you, we will assist in facilitating that and see you upon returning.
