NON-MEDICAL, PERSONALIZED SERVICES
The Patient shall have direct telephone access to Dr. Pam with the following non-medical services, which are complementary to those patients on the membership plan.
The Patient shall have direct telephone access to Dr. Pam seven days per week. The patient shall be given a phone number to reach Dr. Pam directly for guidance regarding concerns that arise unexpectedly after office hours. Video chat and text messaging may be utilized when the patient or Dr. Pam feels that it is appropriate.
The patient shall be given Dr. Pam’s e-mail address to which non-urgent communications can be addressed. Such communications shall be dealt with by Dr. Pam or Anita in a timely manner. The Patient understands and agrees that e-mail and the internet should never be used to access medical care in the event of an emergency, or any situation that the patient could reasonably expect may develop into an emergency. You should agree that in such situations when the patient cannot speak to Dr. Pam immediately by telephone, that the patient shall call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room, seek medical assistance, and follow the directions of emergency medical personnel.
Reasonable effort shall be made to assure that the patient is seen by the Dr. Pam as soon as possible after arriving for a scheduled office visit. If Dr. Pam or Anita foresees more than a minimal wait time, the patient shall be contacted and advised of the projected wait time. Every reasonable effort shall be made to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pam on the same or next normal business day. Visits deemed urgent by the patient after hours will be accommodated as best as possible.
Dr. Pam and Anita will coordinate with medical specialists to whom the patient is referred to assist the patient in obtaining specialty care. The patient understands that fees paid under this health-care membership do not include and do not cover specialist’s fees or fees due to any medical professional other than Dr. Pam.
