New Patient Appointments New patients are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time in order to fill out the necessary paperwork to prepare the patient chart. These forms may be downloaded and completed prior to your arrival. You may either complete and print the forms and bring them to your office appointment along with your insurance information, or email the completed forms by clicking the ' Email Form' button at the bottom of the form. You can then sign the completed form at your office appointment.
Certain patients, depending on their medical condition, may be requested to take 1 plain Fleet enema 2 hours prior to coming to their appointment in order to be prepared for any examination that may be necessary at that visit. The patient will be notified of this by the office staff making the appointment or by phone call prior to the visit date. If the patient is in a lot of pain, they may come without the enemas. If they are coming for a colonoscopy consultation, enemas are not necessary.
Office Hours Our office is open from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. There is at least one physician on call at all times. If you have an urgent problem and it is necessary for you to reach the physician on call when the office is closed, please call our main phone number (732) 389-1331, and you will be directed to call our answering service who will contact the physician on call. If you are expecting a call from a physician, please turn off your caller ID call blocking so you can receive a call from a private number.
Cancellations We ask that patients give at least 24 hours notice if they need to cancel or reschedule an office appointment.
Prescription Refills Because patient records are unavailable after hours, ALL requests for pain medication or other medications MUST be called in Monday-Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
