Same Day Appointments
We are committed to providing the right care at the right time. And so we book appointments on the day you want to see us, even if it is the same day you call.
If you have trouble remembering when you should return to see us, let us know and we will remind you.
All registered clients must call to make an appointment. Calling ahead helps us to prepare for your visit and save enough time to take care of your needs.
Shared Medical Appointments
For those who are interested, we also offer shared medical appointments. A shared medical appointment (SMA) is a 90 minute appointment with a family physician or nurse practitioner. This appointment will be held with other Four Corners clients who share similar conditions.
When you attend an SMA you will have the benefit of having access to a group of health care providers as well as the support of other clients who have a condition similar to yours.
Shared medical appointments are especially effective for clients requiring:
- Pre-natal care
- Post-natal care for well babies
- Care for chronic diseases
- Medical check-ups
Anything you would normally do in an individual office can be done in an SMA. Examinations are completed privately. You also receive the same exam, lab review, and time for individual questions as you would in a traditional appointment.
What’s good about an SMA is that during the 90 minute appointment you have the opportunity to learn from the questions and comments of others who share your situation. You’ll leave the appointment with answers to questions you may never have thought to ask.
Most people who try shared medical appointments want to return but you are under no obligation to do so. If you prefer an individual appointment, you may schedule one at any time.
