Costs and Financial Assistance

We offer a sliding fee scale based on your income level for any out of pocket costs. Please ask staff for assistance with this application if you have any questions.

Though we are able to offer some services at no cost, other services will require payment. We request payment for services at the time of the office visit. Your provider will discuss any costs with you prior to performing these services. You can find more information about our our costs and financial assistance forms at this link.

After Hours Care

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. 

If you have an urgent need outside of business hours, please call our office at (616) 336-8800 and leave a detailed message with the best number to reach you. Our on-call provider will quickly return your call.

Cancelling an Appointment

It’s important that you attend your appointments, because your health matters. But, we know life happens. If you need to reschedule an appointment, please call us at (616) 336-8800. If you are unable to make an appointment on time, or at all, please notify us 24 hours before your appointment. You must attend your first appointment for us to establish care with you as a patient.

Missed appointments means missed opportunities to provide care for patients who need a visit. To make sure that everyone can access the care they need, you are only able to miss four appointments per year before we ask that you find care elsewhere. Please ask our staff if you have more questions regarding this policy.
