Please monitor your medications to avoid a delay in refilling your prescriptions. We recommend that you check the status of your medications before each visit so that you can ask for refills while you’re in the office. Between visits, you can request a refill by calling us during regular office hours.
When calling the office, remember to have your pharmacy telephone number available for refills or new medications that may be prescribed. Please have an alternate pharmacy number available if your primary pharmacy is not open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Lab and Test Results
Please remember that most tests take 24-48 hours for results to come back. All results will be reported once we receive the information from the laboratories. You will be notified by postal mail of results. If you were asked to call or haven’t heard about your result(s), please contact us. Results cannot be obtained after hours and cannot be discussed with the on-call physician.
Patient payment is due at the time of service. If eligible (after a minimum service fee of $250.00 has been met), patients will be offered a discount of 20% for paying in full at the time of service. Refusal to follow this guideline could result in rescheduling, cancelling, or delay of the appointment.
We provide emergency care to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. A medical screening will be completed to determine medical need.
No-Show and Cancellation Policy
For the convenience of all our patients and staff, WVU Cheat Lake Physicians requires 24-hours notice when patients need to cancel an appointment. An established patient who has cancelled or is a no-show three or more times without sufficient notice may be released from WVU Cheat Lake Physicians. A new patient who fails to cancel with sufficient notice or no-shows is subject to a release of medical service from WVU Cheat Lake Physicians.
