General & Administrative Questions

What should I bring to my first visit?

Please bring a picture ID and your insurance card on your first visit. You will need these to complete our registration forms and to see the physician or nurse practitioner.

Do you accept cash, credit cards or personal checks?

We do accept credit cards, personal checks or money orders. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept cash payments at this time.

What parking locations are available?

Please see our locations page for parking options at our offices.

Does your office participate in HMO health plans?

Yes, we accept the HMO plans. Please see the sidebar to the right for a full list of major health plans we participate in.

Are Saturday appointments available?

Saturday appointments are available at both Michigan Avenue and River Forest office.

Our physicians have a rotating schedule for Saturday appointments and the hours may vary.

Condition & Treatment Questions

Do you perform pap smears during a period?

While we prefer to perform a routine pap smear when a patient is not menstruating, it is still often possible to have your pap smear if you have only minor spotting or bleeding.

Can you write a prescription before I see a physician for the first time?

We believe it is not good medical practice for us to prescribe any medication to a non-patient. It is imperative for our clinicians to have a full evaluation of your medical history, current medications, and current gynecological status prior to prescribing medication. We will try to accommodate an earlier appointment, if at all possible, to allow this evaluation in an effort to provide you with the best medical care possible.
