Q: Is there a difference between a physical and regular appointment?
A: One of the major benefits of the affordable care act is that under law you are allowed one physical per calendar year that you will not be charged a co-pay. During this visit the doctor will do a thorough examination however, at the time of a physical a specific need cannot be addressed. Specific needs or request will change the nature of the visit from a physical to a regular visit, this will result in a co-pay.

Q: What is a cancellation and what is a no-show?
A: A cancellation is when you are able to give greater than 24 hour notice to the practice that you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment.

A no-show is less than a 24 hour notice that you will not be able to make your appointment. This may result in a $25 dollar charge, with excessive occurrences resulting in dismissal from the practice.

A: If you have a concern please call (407) 303-7270. All calls will be recorded by our highly trained staff and immediately relayed to your primary care provider. Most calls will be answered within the same business day however, it is practice policy to answer all concerns within 24 hours.

Q: How do I get prescriptions refilled?
A: At the time of your first visit we will ask for a preferred pharmacy. We ask that you call your pharmacy to initiate the request. Once a request is made your primary care provider will electronically send the approval to the pharmacy on file. If there are any concerns with your medication we may need to follow up with your request to obtain further information.
