PHONE CALLS and E-MAILS

PHONE CALLS:

 

Brief phone calls of 5 minutes or less are never charged. These calls should be made during regular office hours and there is no fee. Dr. Stahl is often not available to receive calls during the day as she is seeing patients.  She will make every effort to return the call within 24 hours. If calls are increasing in duration and frequency, this may be a sign that you need to be seen sooner. You will be asked to schedule an appointment.  After-hour non-emergency calls or extended telephone consultations during office hours that otherwise would have necessitated an office visit are charged at a rate of $25.00/5 minutes with a minimum charge of $50.00. Please note that if you have an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

 

 E-MAIL:

 

E-mail is not a secure method of communication and should not be used to discuss private health information. Please call the office or make an appointment if you have private health information that you would like to discuss.
