Office Hours

Our clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Appointments

Our office is open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We see patients by appointment only. Lab work is usually required for most of our patients. Because of this, your appointment time will reflect the time your lab will be drawn. It usually takes our medical technologists approximately 30 minutes to process the needed lab, depending on what your physician needs. If you are scheduled to see a physician, you will be escorted to an exam room after your lab work is completed.

About Us

Medical oncology and hematology are subspecialties of internal medicine. After four years of medical school and four years in an internal medicine residency, these specialists complete two- to three-year fellowships in their respective fields. Oncology is one of the newest sub-specialties in medicine. Medical oncology includes the treatment of malignant disease, or cancer. Hematology includes the treatment of cancers of the blood or other blood
disorders. Our physicians are board certified in their respective specialties and are active members of local and national professional organizations. They attend medical conferences frequently to keep abreast of changes from year to year. They also participate in clinical trials, which allows us to provide the latest in treatment options.

 

Prescriptions
If possible, have a list of prescriptions refills you need available at your clinic visit. If a prescription is needed between appointments, call us during business hours– between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. Narcotic prescriptions must be picked up at the clinic or mailed to you – they cannot be phoned in to your pharmacy. Prescriptions cannot be filled on weekends or after 4:30 p.m. during the week.
