Evaluations and Urgent Problems

In the case of a life-threatening situation, go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room or call 911 for immediate help.

Many urgent problems such as lacerations, sprains, broken bones, head injuries, etc. can be handled either in the office, at a walk-in clinic, or in the emergency room. If an emergency does occur, please call before coming so we can advise if you should be treated here or at the hospital. Treatment in our office may save a considerable amount of time and money over emergency room visits.

At night and on weekends, please call the regular office number (269-428-2552). The answering machine will direct you to Gene or Dr. Stafford’s pager number.

Appointments

Appointments may be scheduled with our office staff by calling 269-428-2552. Please be prepared to describe your medical problem to members of our staff so adequate time may be scheduled for your appointment.

Patient Information

If you are a new patient, prior to your first visit, please complete our New Patient Registration Form, HIPAA Policy and Consent Form, and Patient Consent Form available at the links below. Forms may also be picked up at our office.

Prescription Refills

Prescription refills need to be addressed at your regular office visits.

Telephoning our office between appointments for routine medication refills will be discouraged. In the event you need a prescription to be refilled before a visit can be scheduled, at least 24 hours or more will be needed for us to respond to your request. There will be a $5.00 charge for prescription refills called into the office between visits.

Fees, Insurance, and Billing

Our office currently accepts new patients who are self-pay or have commercial medical insurance. At this time we are not accepting new Medicare patients. We also do not accept Medicaid (Health Plan of Michigan), and we are now part of the Blue Care Network and accepting patients with BCN coverage.

We will accept assignment from Medicare and most commercial insurance companies. Co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance amounts are payable on the day of service. Any fees which are not covered by your insurance will be billed to you. Statements are sent monthly if you have a balance due. Past due balances over 120 days old will be sent to collections.
