Spring Hill – Dr. Shakfeh
New patients are asked to arrive 30 minutes early to complete paperwork. You can download, print, and complete the forms prior to your appointment. Please bring the completed forms, a list of all medications you are currently taking, recent copies of x-rays, lab results, photo ID and your insurance card to your appointment.
Please contact your pharmacy for refill requests. Your pharmacy will fax us the request and your refills will be processed within 72 hours. You may also request refills on the patient portal.
We require payment of your co-payment and past-due account balances at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, debit and all major credit cards. (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover.)
We will submit claims to most major insurance carriers. Please bring your insurance card and I.D. with you to every visit so we can ensure that our records are accurate.
We recommend that you call your insurance company to verify that we participate with your plan as well as any referral requirements, copays, deductibles or other network requirements from your insurance plan. If you have an HMO or an insurance plan that requires a primary care provider (PCP) referral or authorization, please verify that the referral has been sent to our office prior to your appointment. Lack of referral may result in your appointment being rescheduled.
Please notify us if you have any change in your name, phone number, address, or insurance as soon as it occurs. And please be prepared to present your insurance card at every visit.
Cancellations or Rescheduling
To better serve the needs of all our patients, we ask that you call at least 24 hours in advance to cancel or reschedule appointments. We make every effort to stay on schedule, although emergencies arise.
After-hours & emergencies
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, dial 911. However, if you need after-hours advice for a medical concern, please call (352) 666-0544 and our answering service will assist you.
