Patients are seen by appointment only. If you are sick, please call the office rather than just walking in. If there are no appointments available, a member of our health care team will call you back as soon as possible to help you decide what to do.

If you have a problem after hours when our office is not open, you can leave a message on our answering machine. Messages will be picked up the next day the clinic is open.

If you have an emergency, report to the closest hospital emergency department.  You will be responsible for emergency department bills.

If you cannot keep your appointment, please call the office 24 hours in advance.  If you do not call to cancel and you miss your appointment, we will note this in your file as a “No Show.” If you consistently do not show for your appointments, you will be notified in writing that you will need to make other arrangements for your health care.

*** Remember that the Lower Bucks Clinic is a primary healthcare office.  It is not an insurance plan or an emergency facility.  We will do our best to provide services at not cost; however, we may not be able to provide everything you need.  Some testing or referral services may require that you pay part of the cost. We will tell you which services will require partial payment from you.  Almost all of our services will be provided at no charge.
