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. Please call our contact center at 833-MASSLUNG (627-7586) to reach any of our office locations.
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 an unnecessary trip on your part.
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.
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.
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.
