What are your office hours?

North Dallas Internal Medicine is open Monday – Friday from 8:30am to 4:30 pm; by appointment only; and phones are answered until 4:30pm. We are closed for most major holidays. Same day appointments are subject to availability for acute illnesses.

When should I arrive for my appointment?

As a courtesy to other patients, we request you arrive on time. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Current Insurance Card/Government Issued ID ie: Driver’s License, Identification Card
Current list of your medications, including dosage and directions, Diabetic machine, and blood pressure readings to each appointment.
Copay/Coinsurance/Deductible payment. We accept cash, personal in-state checks, VISA and MasterCard. There is a $40 service charge for returned checks.

What is your cancellation policy?

As a patient in our clinic, it is your responsibility to keep scheduled appointments. The clinic requires that all appointment cancellations be received by 3:00pm on the prior business day (example by 3:00pm on Friday for a Monday appointment). Failure to cancel the appointment before 3:00pm the business day prior to the scheduled appointment will result in the assessment of a failed appointment fee of $50 for a new patient and $25 for a follow up. Any appointment scheduled and cancelled on the same day will also result in the failed appointment fee.

What if I need help after hours?

If you have a true medical emergency, call 911 or go the Emergency Center of the nearest hospital. Ask them to contact our office

at (214) 696-1118.

Our telephone is answered 24 hours a day. Calls are initially answered by an auto attendant; this provides navigation options that will lead you which will handle your call most efficiently. After hours, a physician is always on call and available to handle urgent patient problems.

How do I get my medication refilled?

Refills for medication, including those medications that have no remaining refills or request for additional refills, should be called directly to your pharmacy. Your pharmacy will contact us for refill authorization, if necessary. Refills are not taken care after hours or on weekends.

For controlled substances (also known as triplicate prescriptions), you must call our office, not the pharmacy. Triplicate prescriptions must be obtained from our office and hand-carried to the pharmacy by you or an authorized patient representative /family member. Please call at least 48 hours in advance for triplicate prescriptions.


All prescription requests are taken only during regular office hours, not on weekends or major holidays and filled within 48 hours.

How do I request my medical records?

In accordance with Texas law, North Dallas Internal Medicine requires written requests for the release of medical records. If you are in need of a copy of your medical records or if you wish to have a copy sent to another physician, we will be happy to prepare them and/or forward to the requested physician. A fee may be assessed by the copy service for personal copies with payment required before records will be released.


Please allow 15 business days for records requests to be processed

How will I know my test results?

The results of laboratory and radiology tests are very important for the continued evaluation and management of your care. Blood Samples are drawn by Clinical Pathology Laboratory for processing and results. It may take several days to get these results back to our office. When having radiology test, scans, biopsies or any other procedure done outside our office, please know that we will make every effort to obtain the results as soon as possible. However, it could take 48 hours to a week for those results to reach us. 


Locations of Clinical Pathology Laboratory can be found at \\http.www.cpllabs.com. 

When calling our office for results, please ask for your physician’s medical assistant who will let you know if the results are available. If they are unavailable at the time of your call, we will notify you when they are available. It is the normal process of our office to notify you of routine lab results or diagnostic tests by patient portal.

Will my physician fill out required medical forms?

At the discretion of the physician, letters and forms requiring medical review and physician signature are subject to a $25 fee plus $5 per page/side. This fee must be paid prior to the forms being completed.

Talking to Your Doctor!

You may not remember everything you want to ask your doctor. You may find it helpful to write down questions prior to your appointment. When you do get answers to your questions, write them down, too. That way, when you get home, you won’t forget and you will be better equipped to answer questions that your family may have. Keep track of how you are feeling and any changes you notice so you can inform your doctor. By staying organized, you are helping yourself remain in control of your illness.
