Caring for Nursing Home Residents
Your family member who lives in a nursing home might receive care from our providers—such as our board-certified geriatrician (a specialist in treating senior citizens). When you have questions about your loved one’s health, call the nursing facility and ask for the daytime charge nurse on his or her unit. Our doctors will try to return your call during a scheduled visit to the nursing home, where they can access medical records and examine your family member. If your question is urgent, call during office hours.
If you or someone you know speaks primarily Spanish, you’ll appreciate our bilingual family doctor, Omar Villanueva, DO.
To make the most of your appointment:
- Arrive 30 minutes before your first visit and 15 minutes before all subsequent appointments so we can collect, verify or update your information.
- Bring your insurance card and money for copays or co-insurance. (See what insurance providers we accept.)
- Bring a current, complete list of your medications.
To save time during your visit to our family practice office, print and fill out any necessary patient forms at home and bring them to your appointment.
Patient History Forms
Tell your doctor during your appointment if you’ll need prescription refills before your next visit. To request a refill between appointments, call your pharmacy or mail-order service. Submit your refill request several days before you run out of medication; we respond to refill requests only during our business hours.
