Can I just walk in or do I need an appointment?


The system works best if you schedule an appointment. You can walk in for a visit, but when you do you will be given an appointment time to be seen. Sometimes it might be possible to be seen before your appointment time if you are waiting and someone else fails to keep their appointment but, as a general rule, this is not a good idea.  Call the office for an appointment at 912.961.5726.

How long will my appointment take?


The length of time it takes to complete a visit varies depending on the reason for the visit. While most appointment lengths are 15 minutes, you must add the time it takes to check-in, fill out appropriate paperwork and do other tasks related to the visit, such as lab tests, patient education or medication explanations.

What if I have an after-hours' emergency?
