How do I become a patient at Plumsteadville Family Practice?

We welcome new patients into our practice. Please call the office to make an appointment. A complete list of medications and records from your previous physicians are both very helpful.

If your first visit is for an acute illness, you may be seen by one of our physicians or physician assistants (PA). We will take care of your acute problem, and then schedule a more complete follow up appointment.

How much do you charge for an office visit?

Fees vary according to several factors and it is difficult to predict prior to an office visit.  New patient visits are generally more costly due to the extensive nature of the first visit.  The complexity of medical decisions and diagnosis may influence charges.  Any additional testing or immunizations done at the time of the visit may increase your cost.    If your health plan requires a copay, the copay is due at the time of the appointment.

Are you open on weekends?

We are open on Saturdays from 8:30 AM until noon.  Generally, Saturday visits are for patients who are acutely ill and need to be seen on short notice.  We do not schedule routine follow up visits or physical exams on Saturdays.

What is a Physician's Assistant?

Physicians Assistants (PAs) have several years of education in diagnosis, treatment and preventative care.  They take medical histories, do physical examinations, make diagnoses and treat illnesses.  PAs must be certified to practice.  They are able to practice under the supervision of a physician.

Can PAs order medications?

PAs are licensed and able to prescribe most medications needed in the care of our patients.

Is there a doctor available when the office is closed?

There is always a doctor available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency questions and problems.  We have an answering service to take your emergency calls and relay them to our on-call physician when we are not in the office.  If your call is not an emergency, you have the opportunity to leave a message for when the office opens again.

Who is my doctor if I am hospitalized?

Doylestown Hospital has a specialized team of physicians called Hospitalists who care for many of our patients in need of hospitalization.  There are also many specialists and subspecialists available at Doylestown Hospital.  These physicians communicate well with us so that our office is aware of your condition and we can help coordinate post-hospital follow up and care.

Will you see babies in the hospital?

We see all healthy newborns daily until they are discharged from the hospital.
