Preparing for Your Visit
We ask all new patients to schedule a complete physical examination, which allows us to address health maintenance issues and establish a baseline on your health that will assist your provider in effectively treating any illnesses that may arise.
When you call for an appointment, please explain the nature of your problem to allow us to schedule your appointment promptly and efficiently. Please advise us if you will be late or unable to attend your appointment. If you must cancel, we request at least 24 hours notice.
It is our policy that you schedule an appointment to see one of our practitioners to treat your medical problem, rather than diagnosing or prescribing for your condition over the phone. Our medical providers believe that accurate diagnosis and treatment requires a physical examination and appropriate diagnostic testing.
If you need a referral to other specialists or to community resources for specialized evaluation or treatment, we can help you select the resource most appropriate for your needs, and we will continue to work with you and your family for continuity of care.
Payment & Insurance
At the completion of your visit, you will be advised of the fees for the day and any prior balance. The cost of your visit is determined by the time we spend with you, the complexity of your condition, and by the lab tests necessary to properly diagnose and care for you. In an effort to keep our fees fair and reasonable, we request payment of the portion of the bill that is not covered by your health insurance plan on the date of your visit with our office.
Our office is a participating provider with most major health insurance plans. Our office staff will be able to tell you if your plan is accepted by our practice. As a courtesy to our patients, we will file claims to your insurance company and provide them information to determine benefits. It is the responsibility of you and your insurance company to pay your medical bills. If your primary insurance is Medicare, please be aware that some secondary insurance policies do not cover your deductible. We suggest that you review your insurance policies carefully to determine what benefits are covered.
If you have a question concerning billing, please call Cornerstone Financial Services at 336 802-2000.
Electronic Medical Records
All Cornerstone practices are connected to each other through a company-wide electronic medical record. Our patients receive many advantages through this paperless records system. Your provider has quick access to your medical record and is able to share your record with any Cornerstone specialist. They can determine which drugs are on your drug formulary and have access to formulary alternatives. Your provider uses the information in the electronic medical record to work with you to create a customized preventive health plan. This health plan will give you target dates to return for on-going health checkups. Patient confidentiality is carefully maintained with the utmost respect for your privacy. Information regarding your medical care will not be released to anyone without signing consent.
If you are calling for a prescription refill, we ask that you contact your pharmacy, and they will call our office directly. This process allows your physician and the pharmacy to review and complete your request more efficiently.
