APPOINTMENT FAQ

Appointments


We see patients by appointment only. All urgent appointments will be scheduled with a provider that has availability to see you. This may be a physician extender. All referrals and authorizations must be received prior to your appointment. You may schedule an appointment by calling our main number: 214-369-5992, option 2. Schedulers are available Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. Our telephone lines are closed daily from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm. Should you require a thyroid ultrasound prior to your appointment, we will try to schedule these on the same day as your office visit so that you do not have to make multiple trips to the office. Please make sure to bring the following items to every appointment that you schedule:

  •

  • Complete List of All Medications You are Taking
  • Blood Sugar Log (If You are Diabetic)

Face Masks


Patients must still arrive with a mask and keep the mask on during office visits, even if you have been vaccinated. If you have questions about our mask policy, please contact us at 214-369-5992.




Cancellations | No Shows


Your appointment will be confirmed via our automated system 3 days prior to your visit. If you are unable to keep your appointment we request 24-hour notice for cancellations. We realize that sometimes emergencies arise and patients must miss or cancel their appointments on short notice. However, missed appointments affect our ability to provide timely appointments for all patients. We reserve the right to dismiss patients from our practice after three missed appointments in a 12-month period. A $50 no show fee will be charged for all established patients who no show or cancel less than 24-hour notice and $75 fee for all new patients who no show or cancel with less than 48-hour notice.




What is an Advance Practice Provider? How can the services of a Advance Practice Provider benefit me?


Advance Practice Provider play a critical role to help assure that patients are provided with the highest quality of care. Your Endocrinologist may work with a Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Registered Dietician (RD). Both disciplines have completed bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree. They are licensed by the State of Texas and can prescribe medication. All have had rigorous clinical training and have taken national board exams to certify them in their areas of expertise and must complete a set curriculum of continuing education each year, just as your physician is required to do to maintain their license. Nurse Practitioner At North Texas Endocrine Center we believe the team approach is the best for our patient care; to accomplish this model, nurse practitioners are an extension of the patient care. Our nurse practitioners are highly qualified to carry out your plan of care. You may see the nurse practitioner for your first appointment, follow up appointments and/or if the physician is out the office. The Nurse Practitioner work closely at times with the physician to carry out your medical plan.
