New patient appointments and annual physical exams are 30 minutes and follow-up appointments are 15 minutes. For new patient appointments, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time and 5 minutes prior for follow-up appointments to register and fill out appropriate paper work. If you need to cancel an appointment please try to do so 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Your time is valuable to us. For us to stay on schedule and be respectful of our patient's time, it is important to be prompt for your scheduled appointment.  If you arrive 5 minutes after your scheduled appointment time for a 15 minute appointment or 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time for a 30 minute appointment, you may be asked to reschedule. We offer limited same day sick visits and will try to accommodate you as quickly as possible.

Labs: If you need a cholesterol panel or a fasting blood sugar checked you should arrive fasting for your lab work. The laboratory is located on the main floor of the Brier Creek Healthplex next to the Emergency Department. 

Prescriptions: Please bring all of your medications in their containers to each visit with your provider.  We use an electronic medical record to generate all of our prescriptions. Please allow 72 hours for refill requests to be processed.  Call your pharmacy first to request medication refills. We can also refill medications during your appointment and please indicate if you prefer 30 day or 90 day prescriptions. Knowing the name and street address of your pharmacy is always helpful. We will not prescribe chronic narcotic medications and can refer you to one of the many pain management clinics in the area.

Billing: All billing issues are handled through the WakeMed billing department at 800-243-9797. If you have questions about a lab bill, please call 919-350-7821.

After Hours/On-Call: If you are experiencing a life threatening emergency you should call 911 or proceed to the closest emergency department. We are committed to ensuring access to our providers after hours and on holidays and ask that you reserve your calls for emergencies only. We share call with other WakeMed primary care physician practices. We can provide the best continuity of care if you go to a WakeMed facility for emergencies, however you should go wherever you are most comfortable.
