HOURS:

Our office hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are available for each provider to help allow ample time to attend to each patientís needs. However, if time does not allow for a scheduled appointment WE ALWAYS WELCOME WALK-INS.

We ask that you make every effort to arrive on time (or a few minutes early) for your appointment. If it is necessary to cancel an appointment, please call the office as soon as possible to reschedule. This will help others to get an earlier appointment.

Our physicians are available 24 hours a day to meet your needs when emergencies occur. If you need urgent care, please go to the nearest hospital or call 911. The emergency room physician will evaluate your medical problem and consult with our on call physician when necessary. If the office is closed, you may call (731) 587-0730 to reach the on-call physician for Martin Medical Center.
 

INSURANCE

We accept most major health plans and coverage. Our physicians accept Medicare assignment, therefore are participating Medicare providers. If you have any questions regarding your coverage or our participation with your plan please feel free to contact our Billing & Collections staff.

Our office will file your charges to your insurance plan. Please keep the billing office informed of any changes in your insurance status. Although we will gladly assist you in processing your claim, payment of the bill is ultimately your responsibility.

If your charges are to be billed to your employer or workersí compensation, please make sure that you inform the registration staff at each visit.

All claims for auto related accidents are to be paid the day of service; we do not get involved with auto claim settlements. Upon your request we will gladly provide you with a copy of your charges and medical records, if needed, so that you may file with your insurance.
 

PRIVATE PAY

In this age of escalating healthcare cost we realize that there are a number of individuals who do not have insurance coverage. In order to help those individuals we have established a Cash Pay Policy. This policy states: If a patient presents to the office with no insurance coverage, and is prepared to pay the entire cost for the days visit, we will give a 20% discount on the entire amount.
 

PAYMENT POLICY

Payment is due at time of service; this includes any deductibles or co-pays. We gladly accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. Now you can pay your bill on-line through our Patient Portal. To access the Portal click on Patient Portal on the left hand side of the screen.
