Q: How much time should I plan for my appointment?

A: The length of time of your appointment depends on a few factors
  • Whether you are a new patient or established patient
  • The state of your health and whether you have other illnesses
  • Whether certain tests need to be conducted
We recommend that new patients budget 1-2 hours and established patients budget an hour.

Q: How long does it take to get test results?

A: The time it takes for our office to receive the results, varies by the test. Most results are delivered within 2-3 working days (Results for tests done on Wednesday/Thursday are normally delivered by end of day on Monday). However samples for certain tests need to be sent out of state and for these it might take 7-14 days before results are known.
    When you return for your follow up visit, your test results will be reviewed by your physician with you. Our practice staff will not discuss test results over the phone to avoid miscommunication.

Q: How long does it take for medication refills?

A: Refills are generally called in within 24-72 hours. Please do not wait until you are completely out of a medication prior to calling for refill.

Q: Will my sleep study be performed on the same day as my appointment?

A: Following the appointment, the sleep study that is recommended for you could be an at-home sleep study or an overnight test in the hospital Sleep Lab. For both types of tests, prior authorization needs to be requested from your insurance company. The time it takes to receive a prior authorization varies depending on the insurance company. While checking out at the end of your appointment, we will have more clarity on when and where the sleep study will take place.

Q: Do you accept my insurance?

A: We accept most insurance.  However, it your responsibility to check with your insurance company to confirm coverage and benefits. Please be sure to bring your insurance card with you every time you visit us. Please also notify our office whenever your insurance coverage changes so that our staff can maintain accurate medical records.
