Appointments and Scheduling Office Policies

How do I make an appointment?

You may schedule an appointment by calling our office directly at 713-932-0118.

If you are a member of a PPO/HMO in which Dr. Weinstein is a participant, you must identify yourself as such when calling the office. This will help us follow the proper procedures set forth by your insurance company, to maintain network benefits for you and/or your dependents.

Please have the following ready:

  • Patient's date of birth
  • Reason for appointment
  • Patient's day time and evening phone number. Back to Top

When should I call the doctor?

Primary Care physicians should be the first doctors you see when you feel sick. You should call whenever you feel you have a significant problem that either requires being seen or about which you are uneasy. When you need to come to see the doctor, please call ahead to schedule an appointment. Back to Top

When calling, what information should I give?

When you are sick and call the office for an appointment, we need to know exactly what your symptoms are. This allows us to understand your needs and give you the time you need, when you need it. The scheduler has been trained to ask questions that will help her do a good job for the doctor and for you. We will do our best to accommodate your work schedule and your current medical needs.Back to Top

What paper work can I complete before I arrive at the office?

Before the doctor can see you, certain paperwork needs to be completed. As the completion of these forms and questionnaires takes some time, for your convenience, we have posted them on our website for downloading. To save you time, we suggest that you complete the following forms before coming to the office.

New Patients - First Time Visit Forms

  • Patient Registration Form
  • Patient Billing Agreement
  • Office, Financial and HIPPA Policies
  • HIPPA Authorization to Use and Disclose Health Information
  • Release Medical Records Authorization Form

Established Patients - Follow-up Visit Forms

  • Chief Complaint Questionnaire
  • Adult History & Complete Physical Form
  • Medicare ABN Forms prior to have Diagnostic Tests

Can I just walk in for a doctor's visit?

Walk-ins are discouraged, as this practice disrupts proper scheduling and increases patient waiting time. Back to Top

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

When visiting your physician's office, bring your health identification card and co-payment, if applicable. Back to Top

Please allow a few extra minutes before your first scheduled appointment to complete paperwork and give us a chance to become acquainted. We encourage you to make an appointment with your doctor immediately to determine your personal healthcare needs. Back to Top

Co-payments for each office visit are collected at the time services are rendered. Since you know the amount, it may be easier for you to take care of it when you check in rather than waiting in line on the way out. Back to Top

What if I have to change / cancel my appointment?

We appreciate you notifying us if you cannot make your appointment so that we can give that we can meet the needs of other patients during your cancelled time.

If you need to cancel an appointment, please call 24 hours in advance in which case no late fee will be applied. Appointments that are repeatedly missed and not canceled may result in a service charge being billed to you. We reserve the right to terminate our relationship as a result of repeated missed appointment and late cancellations. Back to Top
