We ask your cooperation in coming 10-20 minutes prior to your appointment time to allow proper time for an Assessment and so your visit can begin at your appointment time.
Office hours are by appointment only to permit the most personalized care possible to a large number of patients with a minimal waiting period. Appointments for routine physicals are best scheduled well in advance in order to obtain the most convenient time for all.
Please let us know if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment. We require 24 hours notice for a Canceled or Rescheduled Appointment, otherwise a charge will be made. For 2016 the charge without 24 hours notice is $50 for an Office Visit and $75 for a Physical Exam. Please be courteous enough to cancel in advance if you will not be keeping an appointment, lest the time not be lost for a sick patient in need of care.
Same Day and Urgent Care Appointments
Needham Family Practice for over 40 years has always had Same Day Appointments for patients. We try to leave time open each day to see patients who require Urgent Care which must be seen that day, and of course we will see emergencies any time. If you are waiting while an emergency patient is being treated, your patience is appreciated, keeping in mind that one day you might be in need of such care with urgent problems.
