Appointments

Appointment telephone number is (937) 461-5815. Referring physicians please see the Pulmonary Consultation and Sleep Consultation forms.

Our office hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Each physician has varied hours in the office, but there is always a nurse, medical assistant and care center coordinator on duty. New patient appointments are made by our clinical team so that pertinent medical information may be obtained before the first visit with the physician. Initial appointments may last over an hour as this first visit is very thorough and may include diagnostic testing if the physician deems it appropriate. Subsequent appointments are made by our care center coordinators and are most commonly 15 -20 minute appointments.

We try to honor your appointment time, for we believe in the value of your time and we all dislike long waiting periods in the office. Please understand, however, that emergencies arise in the hospital or patients in the office may require more time with the physician than anticipated. This may cause unforeseen delays for which we request your indulgence. Please let the care center coordinators know if timing is critical to your schedule on a particular day and, if necessary, you may be rescheduled.

Appointments are made up to 6 months in advance depending on the situation. If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please notify the office as soon as possible for rescheduling. This will allow us to put another patient in the opening and not cause you an excessive delay for the future. There is a $25.00 charge for "no show" appointments without prior notification.
