Important Points Regarding Outpatient Consultations
- If you are coming for your first consultation, be sure to bring a referral letter from your current physician. You can ask your current physician for one, and if preferred, they can also schedule your initial appointment with us for you.
- Please note that sudden emergencies and other factors can make a doctor unavailable during their regularly schedule consultation periods. Please call ahead if you need to meet a specific physician.
- Please note that consultations with specialist doctors in internal medicine require prior consultation with general internal medicine doctors.
