How can I fill my prescription?
Call the Health Center at 962.2313.
What if I need an appointment right away?
The Health Center tries to hold a few openings every day for urgent needs. Call the evening before and leave a message or call early in the morning for availability.
What if I can not make a scheduled appointment?
The Health Center requires two hours prior notice to cancel.
My primary care provider is at Westport Health Center, but can I go to the Elizabethtown, Smith House or High Peaks Health Center since they are all owned and operated by the same hospital?
As an Adirondack Medical Home Practice, our patients have to choose one primary care provider and every attempt has to be made to schedule you with that provider. However, patients may go to the other ECH health centers under certain circumstances, i.e., temporary inability to travel to primary care providers location, primary care has no availability for appointment, closure of health center, etc. Please feel free to check with the front office staff if you are having a problem with scheduling.
I had laboratory testing/radiology exams done. When can I get my results?
Although many laboratory and radiology test results are reported quickly, the results must still be forwarded to your provider for review. Staff will notify you of your results as soon as your provider has given them instructions to do so. If you do not hear from us in one week, please call the office.
What if I am not home to receive my results? Can you tell my family member?
If you wish us to leave a message with a family member or friend regarding test results, appointments, etc., you may sign a release to be kept in your chart designating the individual(s).
I have a question about billing. Who should I speak with?
Health Center billing is handled by Visualutions, Inc. You can contact them directly at 877.476.8370.
How can I obtain copies of my records?
Records may be requested via an approved HIPAA release form. All record requests will be filled within 10-14 working days after receipt of payment. There is a charge of $.75 per page for all records.
Will I be charged for copies of my records if I am transferring care to another physician?
No. We will send the last years' records free of charge to your new physician, but only for the first request. If you transfer to yet another physician, there will be a charge for all records.
Have a question?
If you have a question or concern, please contact Robin Dunning, Health Centers Manager at 873.6896 or email@example.com
