Release of Information
Reports concerning your health will not be released to an insurance company or any third party without your written authorization.
To make an appointment at any office, please call (361) 854-7000. Of necessity the physician must work by appointment; however, due to emergencies and the unexpected, he will occasionally get behind. Infrequently your appointment may have to be rescheduled for another day and time. We request your patience and cooperation if this should occur.
Telephoned Medical Questions
Our clinical staff are thoroughly trained to answer many routine medical questions. If they can't immediately assist you with a problem, your physician will be informed. Your physician will answer routine calls at the end of the morning or after office hours. This allows the physician to attend to his office patients with minimum interruptions. Urgent problems are handled as soon as possible!
If you have a serious medical problem after office hours, call our office at (361) 854-7000. Our answering service will contact one of our physicians.
One of our physicians is always on call to respond to your ear, nose, and throat problems. In case of a life threatening emergency, go immediately to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Please call your pharmacy for prescription refills. Your pharmacist will call our office to get your physician's approval.
No Smoking, Drinks, Food or Gum
Many of our patients are allergic to tobacco. Since exposure to tobacco smoke is detrimental to their health, you are asked not to smoke in any of the offices.
Please don't bring drinks, food, or gum into the office!
