Schedule Delays

We know that your time is very valuable and we will try to make sure you are seen on time. However, there are emergencies and unforeseen circumstances that may cause us to fall behind schedule. Should this occur, we will try our best to make your delay as brief as possible. You are more than welcome to stay for your appointment or reschedule at a time that is more convenient for you. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your family.

Due to the nature of our practice there may be times when patients who have come in after you are taken back for their appointment before you. Please keep in mind that Dr. Brooks, and Dr. Smith, and Dr. Lambring may all be seeing patients and if one doctor is running behind, but the others are not, some of those patients of the doctors not running behind may seem to be taken “out of order”. There are many patients here for different reasons. Some may be having a routine exam, while others may be here for extensive testing, visual field testing, laser treatments, or cataract surgery measurements. We will try our best to accommodate you in any way we can.
