New Patient Overview

What to expect at your first visit

Your first visit to our office is a consultation with our physician and will last from 30 to 45 minutes.  During the consultation you will be thoroughly examined and asked many questions about your present and past medical history, the doctor will also review any medical imaging reports you may have.  You will have to bring all medicine you are currently taking with you and your doctor will discuss your condition and determine a treatment plan that is suitable for you.

Due to space constraints only ONE person will be allowed in the exam room with you during the patient/physician examination.

You are asked to fill out the patient registration packet ahead of time and bring it with you or fax it to us at #361-225-0082 or scan and email it to us at . Please click on the link below to print out the Patient Registration Packet, including the Financial Policy, HIPAA consent form, and SOAPP forms.  If you are unable to print out the forms please call us and we will gladly mail out the packet to you ahead of time.

Our Prescription Policy

As of October 6, 2016, medications containing Hydrocodone have been re-classified as Controlled Substance Schedule II by the DEA.  Schedule II means that you need a new prescription for the medication every time you are going to fill it and we are no longer allowed to provide additional refills.

In an effort to better serve each and every one of our patient are Prescription Re-fill Policy is as follows:

Please notify our office 48-72 hours (2-3 Days) PRIOR to running out of your medications.  We DO NOT do early refills, as one month supply MUST last 30 days.

We DO NOT accept any walk-in Refill requests.  They will need to be made by phone 2-3 days in advance.

Refills will not be given after clinic hours, on weekends, or on Holidays when the clinic is closed.

Our patients are very important to us so we ask that you please comply with our Prescription Policy in order to serve you better. Please understand that our providers are still seeing patients during normal business hours so it may take some time to get your request completed.

Also note that some Pharmacies do accept prescription faxes for some Schedule II Prescriptions.
