First Care strives to provide each of our patients with the attention they deserve. While we have allotted times within our schedules for same day appointments, we ask that you reserve these times for serious health issues. This will allow us to spend time with our very sick patients and schedule an appropriate amount of time to address your concerns. Please remember that we schedule appointments based on your current health concern so be sure to tell our Clinic Assistants as much information about your problem as you feel comfortable. This will assist them in scheduling the appropriate amount of time for your appointment.
If you should have to cancel your appointment, we do request 24 hours notice. This will allow us to contact other patients who may wish to be seen sooner and not let an appointment slot go to waste.
We try diligently to stay on time but because each patient has different needs or emergencies may arise, we may run slightly behind. You may always feel free to call our office ahead of time to find out if your physician is on schedule.
