You can reach our Worcester office at 508-926-8240, our Leominster office at 978-466-2692, and our Marlborough office at 508-486-5733. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., by appointment only. In the event that you cannot keep your scheduled appointment, please notify us as soon as possible so that we can reschedule your appointment and accommodate other patients’ needs.

Occasionally, the doctors’ schedules and hospital emergencies necessitate a change in your appointment. When this occurs, we will do our best to contact you to avoid an extended wait or unnecessary trip on your part.

 

Chest X-Rays
Because the reason you will be seeing one of our physicians relates to a possible lung problem, we will likely ask you to have a chest x-ray. This will be done prior to your appointment at either at the UMass-Memorial Hospital (Memorial Campus), Health Alliance Hospital, or Marlborough Hospital. If you just had x-rays or CT scans, please arrange to bring the study and report on a computer disk or (in rare cases now) the actual films themselves.

 

Telephone Calls
Should you have any questions or concerns, please call us. Trained members of our staff, who in most cases can answer your questions, will handle your call. The physicians and nurse practitioners are also available and would be happy to speak with you if staff members cannot handle your problem or question.

 

After Hours/Emergency Calls
If you have an emergency after regular business hours or on weekends or holidays, please call our office and you will be directed to our answering service, which will relay your message to us. We will return your call at the earliest opportunity. If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest medical facility, and ask the emergency room to page your physician so that they are aware of your condition and can coordinate your care.

 

Prescriptions and Refills
Please request any new prescriptions or refills during regular office hours before 3:00 p.m., or your request will be handled the next business day. Please do not wait until you are completely out of your medication to contact us. Allowing your pharmacy a 2-3 day notice to handle this for you is most helpful in obtaining your medications without interruptions. Please follow our instructions carefully in regards to any prescribed medications. Most medications for chronic medical conditions require periodic monitoring to ensure safety.
