Madras, OR 97741
Welcome to the clinic! We have been looking forward to your visit. We offer the following information to help orient you to our clinic procedures. Please ask Dr. Boice if you have any questions.
Appointment scheduling: Our commitment is to assist you in fulfilling your vision of health. Your visit will include an extensive health history, a review of your current health, and lab tests (if necessary). During the first visit we will clarify your vision of health and then determine where you are now in relationship to your vision. At the end of the evaluation, you and Dr. Boice will decide on a course of care that usually includes a combination of educational materials, specific therapies, consultations, and then subsequent reevaluation.
These reassessments and re-examinations are crucial to evaluate your response to the prescribed program. The reassessments help Dr. Boice determine whether you need to make changes in your treatment plan to fulfill your vision of health. Remember that symptoms may resolve long before the underlying causes of disease have been completely eliminated. Instead of merely eliminating symptoms, our aim is to support you in creating health.
Appointment changes: We require a minimum of 24 hours notice to reschedule an appointment. For patients who neglect to reschedule 24 hours in advance, we charge 50% of the office visit fee.
Fees: Fees are due the day the service is provided. Payment can be made with credit card, check, or PayPal. Please see the attached financial policy agreement. Your cooperation is appreciated. We have found this policy to be most effective for both patients and providers. Outstanding balances can cause embarrassment and communication breakdowns, and potentially decrease adherence to the prescribed treatment program. If you foresee any financial challenges, be sure to address them with Dr. Boice prior to your initial consultation.
I understand the office policies as stated above, and I agree to fulfill my responsibilities as a patient as stated herein.
