Yes! We are accepting new patients. We accept most insurance types, but to be sure please contact us. If you have Virginia medicaid or Tenncare/Bluecare, there are a few administrative details that must be handled before being seen. It is our office policy that the Primary Care Provider on the card be Dr. Makres or Dr. Hommel. If you call your insurance and let them know you want the PCP switched they will do so. Usually, it takes about two weeks for them to issue you a new card, at which time call our office @ 423-968-2599 and make the appointment. All other insurance types can call the main office number to make appointments. We will need the name and address of the insurance holder, the policy number and group number, to make the first appointment.
New Mothers For new mothers we recommend scheduling a Prenatal Visit with Dr. Makres or Dr. Hommel to discuss any concerns you may be feeling anxious about. We will see your child in the hospital and let you know when to follow up in our office. Generally, you will follow up with us 2-to-4 days after leaving the hospital for a weight/bilirubin check. Click Here for Newborn Information. At your first visit be prepared to fill out an initial history questionnaireand patient information form. Also, we will need insurance information - see the insurance section of the website. After your weight/bilirubin check stop by the check-out window and make your second appointment for the two week old date. We understand that if this is your first child you may have many questions, so don't hesitate to ask any of our staff or doctors. We have provided this information so that you can be better prepared and less anxious about things.
