What you need to know...

  • THE TIME FOR YOUR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT IS INTENDED TO
    BE THE TIME TO BEGIN THE VARIOUS TESTS MENTIONED.
    This is not the time you will see the physician.
  • EXPECT AT LEAST A 2-3 HOUR STAY AT OUR OFFICE.
    These various tests will take a while.

    This may occur if patients are scheduled for special testing only and are not scheduled to see the physician.

We provide emergency service to our patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
On weekends, holidays, and after office hours when the office is closed, you can reach our physicians by calling the medical exchange answering service 1-800-779-3482 or 1-361-993-8510. The exchange will refer your call promptly and our staff will return your call as quickly as possible.

We encourage you to call the office if you have a problem or a question or need to get in touch with us for any reason. Please make non-emergency calls between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. when your records are readily available to the physician. Out of town patients can call our toll free number 1-800-779-3482 for our Corpus Christi office, or 1-800-300-5388 for our McAllen office.

If you are calling to have a prescription refilled, we ask that you call during office hours so that we will have your chart available to make sure that a refill is the best course of treatment. I have the phone number of your pharmacist available in case our physician needs to discuss your medication. We will return your call as promptly as possible.
