Paradise Valley Family Medicine
Paradise Valley Family Medicine participates with most major health insurance and health maintenance programs (HMOs). We will file other insurances on your behalf; however, you are responsible for payment.
We recommend you become familiar with your health insurance policy, its coverage, limitations, payments and regulations concerning visits, referrals and preauthorizations. Because all insurance contracts are between the patient and the insurance company, you are ultimately responsible for payment.
We encourage you to call during office hours with medical concerns. Our staff has been trained to answer many of your questions and will screen the call for urgency. Please give them as much information as possible. If they are not able to help you, one of the physicians or medical assistants will return your call at his or her earliest convenience.
In general, we believe that it is not possible to practice good medicine over the telephone. We would prefer that you schedule an appointment rather than to anticipate the doctor will diagnose the problem and prescribe medications over the telephone.
Prescription refills should be requested 72 hours in advance through your pharmacy. Your pharmacy will contact us for refill orders. Prescriptions for antibiotics, pain medicines or tranquilizers generally require an office visit.
Monday - Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
If you need to reach a physician after hours, call our office at 602-494-5155 to reach the answering service. If your problem is not urgent, please contact us during office hours the next business day.
Routine well visits will be scheduled with your primary care physician. Please call several weeks in advance for routine physicals and checkups, so we may better accommodate your scheduling needs.
If you have an insurance/address change, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete a patient information form. Always remember to bring your insurance card with you. If you are a new patient to Paradise Valley Family Medicine, please bring a copy of your medical records with you or the name and address of your previous physician.
If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call and let us know at least 24 hours in advance.
NOTE: No show or late cancellations may result in a $25 cancellation fee.
