We encourage you to schedule routine appointments with your established physician. However, should an occasion arise when your doctor is unavailable, please feel confident in scheduling an appointment with any of our providers.
Appointments are usually available on a same-day or next-day basis. Patients with acute illness will receive priority treatment. Patients who walk in without an appointment may not always be able to be seen that day and will be encouraged to make an appointment.
What if I have an AFTER-HOURS EMERGENCY ?
A physician is available for urgent medical problems at all times when the office is closed. The on-call doctor can be reached through our answering service by calling our regular office number at 713/464-9939 and following the directions. Please use discretion when calling after-hours as this is for urgent medical problems only.
In cases of medical emergencies, call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.

How can I REFILL MY PRESCRIPTIONS ?
It is our policy to fill routine prescriptions during scheduled office visits. It is our intention to provide you with sufficient medication until you need to return for your next visit. Please contact your pharmacist if you have additional refills remaining on your prescriptions. Refill requests by telephone or fax to PrimeCare Medical Group will not be honored if you have not been seen in the office within a reasonable time, relating to your medical condition. Narcotics and most controlled medications will not be prescribed or refilled over the phone.
How can I get a REFERRAL TO A SPECIALIST ?
Some insurance plans require that specialist referrals be provided by a primary care physician. Our policy is that an office visit is required for all new referrals to a physician or for medical conditions for which you have not been seen in our office. This policy is to familiarize your primary care physician with your medical condition and to improve communication between your PCP and specialist.
