Our office works by appointment because we value your time, and desire to serve you efficiently. Every effort is made to see our scheduled patients on time.
We pride ourselves on preventing serious cardiac conditions as much as possible. But, as cardiologists we still help to take care of patients with serious and complicated medical conditions. Despite this, as cardiology is a field prone to life and death emergencies requiring us to prioritize care, occasionally there may be delays in the schedule and ask for your patience and understanding if and when they occur. We will make every effort to keep such delays to a minimum and will do our best to keep you informed of any delays that occur. In rare instances, it might be necessary to cancel and/or reschedule an appointment with little or no notice. We realize that should you ever find yourself as the one in need of our emergency care at the hospital or office or extra time with the doctor, you would be grateful that others understood while waiting. We appreciate your understanding and will try to accommodate your needs as best as we can.
We encourage you, during office visits, to ask for a full explanation of your medical problems. Do not leave with unanswered questions. You have a complete right to ask for all that we can answer concerning your condition.
If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, we certainly will understand, but please kindly notify us at least 24 hours in advance.
Remember that a no show appointment (or calling at the last minute to cancel or reschedule an appointment) takes an opportunity away from those who need to see their doctor or have a test done urgently. And maybe next time, that will be you.
If you are going to be late for an appointment, please call as soon as possible and we will try to accommodate you as best as we can. This courtesy allows us to accommodate other patients.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
