Patient Information
Appointments
We are currently accepting new patients. All visits are handled by appointment and scheduled with the physician of your choice whenever possible. Call 316-293-2633 and press 4 to make an appointment.

New Patients
If you are a new patient, please check in 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. You will need to complete a variety of forms and present your insurance information. We will be happy to submit a claim to your insurance company on your behalf.

Cancellations and No Shows
If you are unable to keep your appointment, we require 24 hours notice of cancellation. To ensure availability of appointments to our patients, we have adopted a “no-show appointment” policy. If you miss three appointments, your physician may review your records to determine if you'll continue to be seen at our clinic.

Referrals
If you have insurance that requires a referral, please call your primary care physician to have a referral mailed to us at 9300 E. 29th Street North, Suite 209, Wichita, KS 67226, or faxed to 316-293-1866. The referral must be received prior to the scheduled appointment. Any charges incurred that are not covered by your insurance company due to lack of a referral will be your responsibility. We require 48 hours advance notice for completion of a referral for visits to other physician offices and emergency rooms. Same-day referrals are available only for emergencies. Our staff will help ensure you are going to the right physician for your insurance plan.

Financial Responsibility
You are responsible for all charges incurred for your medical care.

Non-Covered Services
You are responsible for services that are denied by Medicaid or other insurance as non-covered services.

Minimum Payment of $50
If you do not have insurance, you will be required to pay a minimum of $50 toward the charges you incur when you check in. You must make payment arrangements for the remaining charges.

Co-Pay
If you have insurance that requires a co-pay, the co-pay must be paid at check in. If you cannot pay the co-pay, your appointment will be rescheduled.

Prescription Refills
Call your pharmacy for refills. The pharmacy will fax us the request. Prescription refill authorizations will be processed Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ONLY. If a written prescription is required, the nurse will call when it is ready for pick up. Allow 48-hour turnaround to get prescriptions refilled.

Hospitals
We utilize area hospitals. Our primary hospitals are Wesley Medical Center and Via Christi-St. Francis, where our hospitalist teams care for our hospitalized patients. Your hospital admission will be determined by your personal preference and/or the requirements of your health insurance company.
