Learn More About MyChart
Once you become a patient you will find that YOU are the most critical part of your care team. As a patient, you can obtain care and clinical advice during normal business hours by contacting your physician’s office. After business hours, our answering service will contact the appropriate person to handle your needs, as we have an on-call physician available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you are a patient currently using MyChart, you may be able to request a refill through the app or online portal. For prescriptions not available in MyChart, please make an appointment so a physician can evaluate if the medications need to be changed. It could take up to 24-48 business hours for a refill to be submitted.
Our practices use an electronic health record system that allows for a seamless patient experience through improved communications, timeliness, patient information storage and portability. This system, called MyChart, will allow you to view medications, allergies, health issues and recent visits.
New patients in our practices are asked to complete a medical release form before your appointment. The signed form gives us the ability to request medical records from other physician practices that you may have visited. This information provides our physicians with a more complete medical history. To obtain or transfer detailed medical records to another practice, please contact the Medical Records Office at 864-560-6273.
Insurance & Billing
We are participating providers for most medical insurance plans. Because there are a variety of options, please contact your insurance company or one of our patient access representatives to ensure our practice is a provider for your plan. Please remember to bring your insurance card with you.
We request payment for all office visits at the time of service. Co-pays are required for all insured patients. If you have questions about fees, our office or Physicians Billing Service will be glad to assist you at 864-560-4413 or 877-596-2455.
