Schedule a Doctor's Appointment

To schedule an appointment for an office visit with our cardiac health care providers, please call our office at (228) 863-5211. Our receptionists will schedule your appointment and give you a courtesy reminder call the day before.

Appointments are given in the order received, unless they are marked urgent by the referring provider or the patient is symptomatic.We strongly suggest that you call as soon as possible to avoid potentially long delay in scheduling your appointment.
Please keep your appointments, even if your symptoms subside — the resolution of symptoms does not necessarily indicate that the underlying cause has ceased to exist, or call us and cancel your appointment to free the time slot for another patient.


Our business hours are:
Monday through Thursday: 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Friday: 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM

We open daily at 7:30 AM for patients who already have appointments.

To avoid long hold times, we do recommend that you call outside our peak call hours of 10:30 AM- 2 PM.


Please bring your medications with you to each and every visit. Our medical nurses will reconcile your medication bottles and the information in our electronic system

On your first visit, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment time to fill out the paper forms.
