To renew a prescription or request sample medications, call 248-267-5050 and select option #3. Or you may renew your prescription online through the patient portal. When possible, please request new prescriptions at the time of your office visit.
If you are on a medication that requires adjustments based on blood levels (i.e. Coumadin, Ticlid, or cholesterol lowering medications), please notify our nursing department when you have your blood drawn. They will contact you within three days of your blood draw to confirm any medication adjustments.
Our cardiac nurses are available to take your questions by phone, and if necessary, put you in touch with one of our physicians. If you need urgent attention after office hours, or during weekends or holidays, you can contact our on-call cardiologist by dialing our answering service at 248-288-1885. For non-urgent matters, please call during normal business hours. Of course, if you are not sure of the nature of your problem, do not hesitate to call.
We believe our patients should take an active role in their health care. Always have access to a list of your current medications. We provide wallet cards for you to track your medications. We have educational materials available in the office and have books and videos available for loan to patients. Ask your nurse or medical assistant if you need assistance finding educational materials.
We participate with many insurance plans and will bill non-participating plans for you as a courtesy. However, health plans vary in what they cover. Therefore, we ask you to be aware of what your health plan covers, and your responsibilities for deductibles and co-payments. It is a good idea to call your insurance company prior to each visit to ensure that the services to be provided at our office are covered.
Please bring your insurance card with you to your appointment, and notify us if your insurance changes. If you belong to an HMO, you must have all necessary referral forms prior to your visit. Your treatment could be delayed or rescheduled without the appropriate forms.
Payment is expected at the time of service and we request that you clear your account of all unpaid charges upon receipt of your statement to avoid collection action. If you have financial difficulty with a large medical bill, please call our Billing Department at 248-267-9061 about developing a payment plan.
