If you or one of your family members are having an emergency, call 911 or
proceed to the nearest emergency room. If the need is less urgent, call us. If we can
safely manage your problem with an office visit we will be happy to do so. If we feel you
need an evaluation at a hospital we will expedite the process for you. We are affiliated
with the hospitalist physicians at GMH and at the Charlotte hospitals.

visit to insure that we file your insurance correctly, and to correctly perform
authorizations and referrals. If you do not have your insurance card with you we will need
to reschedule your appointment.
