If you need an appointment and you are an established patient please call 702-256-4646 or e-mail the receptionist at the address above. If you get the automated attendant please choose option 5. If you are a new patient please choose option 3. We return all calls promptly. We never leave the office until every single call has been returned on that same day. For your convenience, you can leave a message for the receptionist voicemail box after hours and on weekends. We will return those messages on the next business day. You can call for appointments 24/7.
We use an Open Access Scheduling System. We are by appointment only. This means that it is relatively easy to obtain an appointment on the day you call. We do today's work today. Although we have thousands of patients we are never booked out more than one day. We have been successful at this Open Access Scheduling System since we opened in November 2004. Usually, our office schedule runs rather smoothly. Patients are generally impressed with the ease of flow for appointments. Wait time is consistently < 15 to 30 minutes.
You can help us to continue to be successful at such a phenomenal scheduling record by coming early or on time for your appointment. If you are late for your appointment, we will have to mark you as a no show appointment and you will forfeit your appointment slot. A doctor's office has an inherent possibility of running late because sometimes very sick patients make the doctor run behind. We mitigate this by honoring our appointment slots to the best of our ability at the frontdesk. You can avoid forfeiting your appointment slot by being early or on time.
