Our knowledgeable nurses have over 167 years of combined experience and are available during office hours to answer all of your questions. With certifications in women’s health and high risk obstetrics, we are always staffed with 6 nurses each day to meet patient needs. Please don’t hesitate to call.
In general, prescription refills are handled at the time of your office visit. (Please note that if you have not seen your doctor within the past year we may not be able to refill your prescription by phone.)
Onsite Lab Services
We now offer convenient onsite laboratory services for many of your needs, including routine blood work. Labs can be done on the day of your visit by a Munson Medical Center phlebotomist.
All laboratory results—including pap smears, biopsies, etc.—are always communicated back to the patient, either in writing or through a personal phone call. In general, patients can expect test results within three weeks of the procedure. If a patient has not heard from us within that time, we ask that you notify our office.
All patient medical records are kept onsite at the Grand Traverse Women’s Clinic. Because of the strict confidentiality of your records, we may not release them to another physician without your written permission. We handle record transfers promptly, with a nominal charge of $15. In compliance with state law, paper medical records generated at this office are preserved for seven years and subsequently destroyed.
As of September 2012, we transferred to an electronic medical records system—your paper chart in electronic form. This is in order to be compliant with government regulations and to streamline healthcare. We are able to have an organized chart system to provide you the most competent care at the time of your visit, quickly get lab results directly into your chart from the lab, e-prescribe your medication at the instant you are seen, promptly send notes and necessary chart information for referrals you may have, document and print patient education materials for you on the spot, along with many other capabilities the system offers.
