The Miami Gastroenterology Consultants Difference

Our patients are the most important people we know!

At MGC, we strive to continuosly improve the health of our patients. Below are a summary of our policies which adhere to the highest standards in ethical, professional and compassionate care.

Our Office Hours

Our friendly and well trained staff will be able to assist you in both English and Spanish from Monday through Friday 9:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M.

Appointments

We see all patients on an appointment basis, and ask that you call in advance so that we may reserve time for you. The office phone number is (305) 274-7800 Ext 100. We try to see all patients on time, and request that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, call (305) 274-7800 Ext 100 to notify us immediately. Please try to give us 24 hours notice so that this time may be given to another patient. If you cannot keep an appointment for a procedure, please notify us with 48 hours.

Emergency

In the event of a severe emergency, go immediately to the emergency room of the nearest hospital and ask them to contact your doctor.

If the situation is not that severe and arises while the office is closed, telephone (305) 274-7800 and the answering service will promptly forward your message to the doctor on call. 

You will receive a response as quickly as possible. If an urgent situation arises while the office is open, call the office and the doctor will be in touch with you either directly or through office personnel giving you instructions on where to meet for emergency care.

Telephone Calls

We encourage you call with questions you may have concerning your health care problems; however, it would be unfair to other patients if the doctor were to disrupt treatment to answer every phone call. Our staff is trained to answer most questions. If your call requires that the doctor speak with you, please leave a message and the doctor will return your call at the earliest opportunity.

Prescriptions and Renewals

All prescriptions and authorizations for renewals should be requested during normal office hours. We require at least 72 hours for refills and authorizations.

Fees and Payments

We make every effort to keep down the cost of your medical care. you can help by paying for treatment at the time of your visit. If your treatment requires several visits, you will be given an estimate and asked to make financial arrangements with a member of our business staff.

Insurance

Health care insurance is intended to cover some, but not all, of the cost of your treatment. Most plans include co-insurance, a deductible and other expenses which must be paid by the patient. If you have insurance, please bring your plan information with you to assure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. If you required a referral from your Primary Care Physician, remember to bring it the day of the appointment. At the end of each visit, we will file the claim with your insurance company. If you have questions regarding your coverage, please ask a member of our business office staff and we will work with you to find the answer
