Late to Appointment


If you are 10 minutes late for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule.  If the physician’s schedule allows, you may be able to be seen later that day or the next, however, this will not always be possible.


Our office strives to stay on schedule, as it facilitates higher quality care and lower costs.  One or two late patients cause the entire daily schedule to fall behind.  We ask that you are punctual to your appointments.  The physicians and staff, as well as your fellow patients, thank you.

Prescriptions over Phone

Quaker Medical Associates does not prescribe medication for illness over the phone.  We want to see you to ensure you are receiving the correct, best treatment. 

Exceptions:

  • Urinary tract infections in women over the age of 21 without concerning symptoms
  • Pink eye
  • Probable strep throat when a household contact was had a very recent case confirmed by testing

MISSED APPOINTMENT OR “NO-SHOW” POLICY


While we make every effort to provide a reminder call at least 24 hours before your appointment, it is ultimately the patients' responsibility to remember the appointment date and time. We do charge a $50 missed appointment fee to patients who do not keep their scheduled appointment time or who cancel less than 24 hours in advance.  All fees must be paid before a new appointment can be scheduled. 


After (3) missed appointments, the practice may, at its discretion, choose to discontinue your care. Non compliance is something our office takes very seriously as it impacts the quality of care you recieve. We strive for excellence, and missed appointments only diminishes the relationship we are looking to have with our patients.  While we try to understand that last minute schedule changes do happen, please make every effort to keep your appointment.

Yearly Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Urine Testing


Quaker Medical will, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) screening guidelines, test the urine of all individuals aged 13-24 at least yearly for chlamydia and gonorrhea infections.
