General Office Questions

How do I get in touch with the office?   Obviously if there is a medical emergency you should call 911.  But if you need to speak to one of the doctors or have an urgent question, call and someone should pick up the phone.  After hours you leave a voicemail and the on call physician will call you back.

Can I make appointments online?    Not at this time.  We are working on setting up a patient portal to do exactly that and do more including checking results, however it is not implemented yet.  You can pay your bill online.

Can I pay my bill online?   Yes, we are happy to offer this service to our patients.   Visit http://jupiterobgyn.com/bill-pay/ to pay your bill.

Do you have same day appointments?   For certain medical reasons we will make every effort to accommodate patients who need to be seen on an urgent basis.

How do I get my results?

In general the office will call you with your results.  Mammogram results are reported to you by the imaging center where it is performed.

 

OB questions

Do you care for all OB patients?  We take care of both low risk and high risk OB patients

Do you do home deliveries?    No, however much of the experience a patient might want at home, can be replicated at our local hospitals.

Do we work with midwives?  No

What hospitals do you deliver at?   Jupiter Medical Center and St. Marys Medical Center

I am seeing a high risk doctor, but who will be there for the delivery?   Many times we will work in conjuction with a Perinatologist, otherwise known as a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist or High-Risk OB doctor.   We are still your regular doctor and will be there for delivery, with the specialist just acting as a consultant
