Welcome New Patients!
New patients may call to schedule an appointment at 828-294-4100 and select option 3. We will do our best to
accommodate your needs. We accept new patients from birth to geriatrics. Our practice participates in most
insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid; however, we only accept patients with Medicaid under the age
of 12 years of age. All new patients are required to pay a $50.00 “good faith” pledge that they will keep their
scheduled appointment. This fee can be applied to your deductible, coinsurance, or copay once we file your
insurance. Our practice requires that all copayments, deductibles and co-insurance be paid at the time of service.
New patients are to arrive 20 minutes prior to their appointment, bring a valid ID (driver’s license), their current
medications, a list of drug allergies, and their insurance card. Please download and complete all new patient forms
from our website, or complete the New Patient Welcome kit sent to you and bring to your initial appointment. If you
neglect to bring these forms with you, you will be required to complete all of the necessary forms, prior to being seen.
Under HIPAA (Protected Healthcare Information Compliance Act), you will be required to have your picture taken
and downloaded into our EMR system. If you are unable to keep your appointment, you must notify our office 24
hours in advance in order to avoid a No Show charge.
