Premier Care For Women office hours are subject to change based on the physician’s emergency call schedule. Our physicians are on-call for one week at a time. During their week on-call, they do not have office hours except for Saturday morning. Please check our office and phone hours under each location. We forward our phones in the evening to our answering service by about 5:00 pm. To contact us or schedule an appointment click here.
About Your Visit
We work very hard to accommodate a large number of patients with appointments. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow adequate time for you to complete any required forms and give us updated insurance or contact information. If you arrive very early for your appointment, we will try to see you sooner if possible. If you are more than 30 minutes late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule. Patients who routinely miss appointments may be discharged from the practice.

Completion of Forms
We understand that on occasion patients may need a form completed by their provider (e.g. disability, FMLA, WIC, return to work form, etc.). We try to complete many of these requests immediately. However, sometimes this is impossible. For this reason we require patients to fill in as much information as possible before giving us the forms. Please allow a minimum of 72 hours for forms to be completed. Note: There may be a fee for processing some forms or for re-processing lost or incorrect forms.

Scheduling Annual Exams
Routine annual exams (Pap smear) are usually scheduled 90 days in advance. However, we can usually schedule a routine annual exam with one of our nurse practitioners in just a couple of weeks. We must limit the number of annual exams each day so that we have sufficient appointment times for patients with urgent medical conditions. Thank you for your patience when scheduling an annual exam.
It is the patient’s responsibility to provide our office with current contact information. Tests that are ordered by our providers are tracked in-office. You will be notified by phone or mail of abnormal results. It is our policy to not leave test results on a patient’s voice mail. You may contact our office at any time to verify normal or abnormal test results.
Patient confidentiality laws limit to whom we can release information. Please know that these laws are to protect you and your confidential health information. Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience.
