Your Visit to Jackson Surgical Associates
Our entire staff at Jackson Surgical Associates is prepared to make your visits to our clinic and any subsequent surgery go as smoothly as possible. That begins even before your first visit to our facility.
On your first visit, be sure to bring your insurance card and any information given to you by your referring physician. Many insurance plans, for example, require a referral form from your physician.
Even though most patients are referred by a physician, we do accept self-referrals for surgical consultation. Your first visit will involve an examination by one of our board-certified surgeons.
We will then set up a surgery date for you if surgery is warranted. Except in emergencies, you will not go to the hospital from our clinic.
Jackson Surgical Associates Clinic Hours
Our Jackson Surgical Associates clinic is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Except in an emergency, we prefer to see patients by appointment.
This allows us to schedule you an appropriate amount of time with one of our physicians. If you cannot keep your appointment, please give us as much notice as possible.
Our physicians are on call 24 hours a day. If you have an emergency during business hours, our staff will advise you whether to meet your surgeon at our clinic or at the hospital emergency room.
After hours, you can call our office answering service, which will contact the physician on call, or you can go to the hospital emergency room and the hospital will contact our physician on call.
