We need your help. Too many of our patients are missing appointments without canceling them. When this happens an appointment is wasted. As soon as you know you will be unable to keep an appointment, you can help us by calling 984-974-4462 or canceling via MyUNCchart the earlier we know the better. We would like to be able to offer unused appointments to other patients who need to see the doctor.

When you need to cancel an appointment, call the clinic location where your appointment is scheduled, 984-974-4462 (Eastowne) or 984-215-6380 (Panther Creek), choose your language preference and then choose option #1 and leave your:

  • Name
  • Medical record or social security number, and
  • Date of appointment that you wish to cancel.

You can choose option #3 If you would like to speak to a Patient Assistant.


Appointment Length

It typically takes 45-60 minutes for an appointment once you check in. This includes time with your nurse, your provider and check-out.


Additional Information

Televox®, an automated phone system, will call you to remind you of your appointment a few days in advance. You will be able to cancel or confirm your appointment at this time. You can also use your MyUNCchart to confirm, request or cancel an appointment.

More Information

Lab Results

If you sign up for MyUNCchart many of your results should be released within 72 hours to your MyUNCchart. Otherwise, you should receive your result letter with your lab results for tests ordered by one of our Internal Medicine providers within 2 weeks of the date the lab was drawn.

Please note not all of your tests or labs will be in your MyUNCchart. If you have not received your results within the two weeks please notify our office at 984-974-4462 or send a message through MyUNCchart to your provider.


Medication & Prescription Refills

The best way to obtain a prescription refill is to have your pharmacy submit a refill request electronically. You can also request refills through My UNC Chart.

For patient safety and refill accuracy, we do not accept refill requests over the telephone.  All requests must be submitted electronically from your pharmacy, faxed to 919-843-9355 or via MyUNCchart.

Although we usually process requests the same day as received, please allow 2 business days for refill requests to be completed.

Certain medications may require an appointment to assess the ongoing need for the medication.

Please review your need for prescription refills before your visit so your doctor can provide them.  It also helps to bring your medicine bottles to your visit.


Financial Assistance

There are two resources available to help patients with their medical bills.

We provide the following options to help you with your medical assistance:

  1. A financial counselor available to help the patients pay their hospital and physician bills.
  2. A financial assistance program available through the pharmacy to help patients pay for their medications.

You must qualify to participate in these assistance programs.

Financial Counselor for Hospital and Physician Bills
