We charge $25 for missed appointments and $175 for repeated missed appointments. Missed physicals and new patient appointments are charged $250.

All lab tests must be ordered by a physician. Therefore, you will need an appointment with your provider to get any lab tests ordered. Results will be sent to your portal, and you can view them online. They can take anywhere from 2-7 days, depending on the test being ordered (some even longer). As soon as we have the results, they will be uploaded with comments from your provider for your viewing. If your provider thinks something is abnormal and action needs to be taken, you will be contacted directly by your provider or one of our staff to discuss your results.

  • Be prepared to leave a message for the nurse to call you back.

Refills on medications should only be done during your appointment with your provider. Please check your refills before you come to see us, and confirm you will have enough medication to last until your NEXT appointment.

For Class II Controlled Substances, a special hard-copy prescription form is required by Texas State Law. Refills on these meds will need to be handled in person with your provider. Prescriptions that are lost, stolen, or destroyed will not be replaced.

In general, our physicians do not prescribe antibiotics without an office visit. Most respiratory infections are self-limited and will not be helped by taking antibiotics.  Overuse of antibiotics leads to the development of resistant bacteria, which can make subsequent infections harder to treat.

If you are feeling sick, please call the office to schedule an appointment, or you can make an appointment online on the patient portal.

We always have a provider on call when the office is closed. If you have an urgent problem and would like to reach the provider on call, please keep in mind the following information:

  • To reach the on-call provider, call our main office number and follow the instructions.

Our office uses a separate billing company to coordinate billing issues with your insurance company. If you have a question about a bill received from Uptown Physicians Group, also known as PGM Billing, you can send questions through your portal account.

Lab companies are also responsible for billing your insurance company for lab tests that are done through our office. Check your bill to see if it is from a lab company, such as LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics, and if so, you should contact them directly at the phone number listed on the bill.
