About the Practice ...

The office is open Monday thru Friday at 8:00 am for the scheduling of appointments and to answer any of your questions or concerns. Your health and wellness is the #1 priority of this office. We will assist you in setting up follow up appointments, scheduling procedures, and the scheduling of appointments with specialists.

Referrals ...

Please refer to your insurance plan manual for your referral policy. Referrals to specialists for new patients will be authorized only after an initial visit. We require one week for the processing of referrals for routine visits. Emergency referrals will be done on a case by case basis. Most insurances participate with electronic submission. Once completed, your referral will be able to be accessed by your specialist via their secure electronic access.


Refills will be done during our regular office hours. Please allow 24-48 hour prior to going to pharmacy.  If you are leaving a message on our automated phone system, make sure you leave your name, phone number, prescription, and your pharmacy name and location. Prescription refills are determined by the physician. Depending on the prescription, if too much time has elapsed from your last appointment we will ask you to come in for a visit in order for the prescription to be refilled.  

After hours...

Dr. Wasson usually takes after-hour and emergency calls by himself. Referrals, refills, and new prescriptions will only be authorized during office hours. When leaving a message for Dr Wasson, make sure to leave your name and call back number.
