How far in advance do I need to call for an appointment? Do you have same day appointments?

We do have same day appointments when the doctors are available. Appointments fill up fast. It is best to call a week or two ahead of your desired time.

Same day appointments are available on most days. Please call as soon as possible in the day and we will do our best to get you in. There are some days were we simply do not have a same day appointment but would be happy to schedule an appointment for the next available time.

The one exception to the same day appointments would be a medical emergency…If you have a medical emergency, we will be happy to work with you to get you in that day provided a Doctor is available and in office.

Do you provide medical emergency appointments?

Yes, we do. We try to be as accommodating as possible when you are dealing with an eye concern. Please give us a call and we will try to work in same day if Doctor is available. If your condition is something we are unable to treat we will try to help refer you to a more appropriate Doctor.
