Appointment Information

You can schedule an appointment by calling during office hours.

Your cooperation in arriving on time for your appointment helps us stay on schedule. We strive to provide each patient with the highest quality care. In the event that our schedule is delayed, please rest assured that you will also get personalized attention during your appointment.

If you must cancel your appointment for any reason, please call at least 24 hours in advance. That will allow us to offer the appointment to another patient.

Prescription Refills

Please allow 48 hours for all prescription refills.

Call your pharmacy and ask them to transmit the refill request to us electronically or fax the request to the office at 585-334-0213. The pharmacy will provide us with all the information needed to refill your prescription.

For any controlled medication refills, call the office at (585)334-0130. Please allow the office 3 to 5 days for written prescriptions on controlled medications. Our office policy is that controlled substances must be picked up at the office, not phoned into the pharmacy or mailed to the patient.

Because controlled substance prescriptions cannot be refilled over the phone, please make sure you always have enough medication for nights, weekends, and holidays.

Emergencies/Hospitalizations

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room and have the hospital notify our office or the physician on call.

Most insurance plans require prior approval of all emergency room visits. Please call our office at 585-334-0130 before obtaining these services.

We admit adult patients to Highland Hospital, an affiliate of the University of Rochester Medical Center. We have partnered with the Highland Hospital Hospitalist Service.

After Hour Care

Calkins Creek Family Medicine provides 24-hour telephone coverage for emergencies and urgent problems. If you have an emergency/urgent problem after regular office hours, please call our office at 585-334-0130. The answering service will ask for information about your medical problem, will take your phone number, and have the doctor call you back.

Billing

Calkins Creek Family Medicine is part of Highland Hospital. Because of
that, you may receive two separate bills for your care–one from Highland
Hospital and one from your provider.

That is so because Medicare requires us to file two claims with them each
time we see a patient. Medicare Part A covers your visit to this hospital
facility, and Medicare Part B covers the professional services of the
physician/provider who provides your treatment. Therefore, you may receive
two separate bills to satisfy your coinsurance payment and deductible
responsibilities.

Co-payments should be made at the time of your visit. You can pay with
cash, personal check or credit card, or you can pay your hospital or
physician bill online at Online Bill Pay.

If you have questions about your account, please contact Highland Hospital
Patient Accounts at (585) 756-8548 Monday - Friday between 8 a.m. and 4
p.m.

Insurance

We accept most types of insurance including Excellus Blue Cross-Blue Shield, MVP, Aetna, Medicare, Medicaid, as well as others.

Please notify our office if your insurance coverage changes. Bring your insurance card with you to your appointment; we will need the new information printed on your insurance card.

We are committed to providing excellent health care for everyone. Financial hardships should never stop you from getting the medical care you need. The Charity Care Program helps those who are unable to pay medical bills. If you feel you need help, please call the Charity Care customer service staff at 585-758-7650 or out of area toll free 1-888-925-4301.
