Office Policies

Office Hours

The office is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. During these hours, your primary physician’s nurse (R.N.) is readily available to handle your calls.

Emergency and After Hours Care

If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.  If you believe you are in labor or for other urgent Ob-Gyn matters you may call our answering service at 205-397-1286 or 205-930-4038.  Please give the operator the reason for your call and a pharmacy phone number.  She will contact our physician on call who will return your call as soon as possible.  We do not share call with physicians outside of our group.

Your Annual Exam

A yearly exam without a co-pay does not apply to visits addressing problems or complaints (such as abnormal bleeding, menopausal symptoms, breast pain, etc.). For our patients’ convenience, our physicians are very willing to address any concern or problem you may have at the same time as your yearly exam. Please be aware, however, that an office visit will be submitted to your insurance company and a co-pay may be required.

Prescriptions

If you need to have a prescription refilled, please call during regular office hours, and be sure to have the telephone number of your pharmacy available. You can also request prescription refills online if you have registered for our Patient Portal.

Disability and family leave forms

There will be a charge for completing all DISABILITY and FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE FORMS. Payment is expected at the time the forms are received here in our office. Please notify us of how long you plan to take off work. Allow seven working days for completion of the forms.
