Can you meet with me over the phone, video or E-visits?
Yes, we provide phone, video and E-visits to expedite your path to healthiness. Sometimes, an in person appointment may be required though to ensure you are receiving the care you need. Phone and video appointments are scheduled and billed the same as in-office appointments. Dr. Leslie will call you at your appointment time. Documents may be sent to you 10-30 min before the appointment for you to review. E-visits include a single email or portal response (or lab order) so you receive answers to your brief questions without having to wait for an appointment and it is usually less costly than an on-site, phone, or video appointment. E-visit fees range from $30-$75. If you have additional questions or want to go over Dr. Leslie's response in more detail, we recommend scheduling an in person or phone appointment instead. You do not need to be present for E-Visits unlike a phone/video consult. Credit card information must be on file for these services.
What is your cancellation policy?
We request that you let us know at least 48 hours prior to your appointment. Letting us know in advance allows us to accommodate the schedules of patients on our waiting list.
Missed and canceled appointments less than two business days will be subject to a $100 fee.
How do I obtain my test results and health records from another physician?
Dr. Leslie often reviews health records to better provide efficient care at your visit. We will provide our Authorization for Release of Patient Information Form for you to fill out and sign for us to obtain your records.
When can I expect my lab results?
If there are any test results that require urgent attention we will follow-up with you the day we receive your results. Otherwise, we ask that you schedule an appointment to review your lab results with Dr. Leslie so she can provide te medical analysis and recommend the next steps for your optimal health.
Can you just send the results to me?
Once the results are ready, Dr. Leslie will review them and create a detailed treatment plan, to discuss at your follow up appointment. This policy is in place to avoid any misinterpretation and to make sure that you receive the best care possible.
How do I make prescription requests?
Please request refills directly to your pharmacy at least 5 business days in advance. Your pharmacy will contact us directly along with any changes you request. If you need a prescription filled at another pharmacy, request the transfer to get the remaining leftover refills to your new pharmacy. If no refills remain and you need to change pharmacies or if this refill is urgent, request an E-visit along with the pharmacy name, address, phone, and fax. If the provider requires a phone, video, or E-visit to recheck your dose or order any labs, we will notify you.
How do I order supplements?
You can pick up your supplements during our office hours or at your appointment. We recommend contacting us first to make sure we have everything you need in stock.

Balances over 90 days may be subject to collections. For any questions on statements, contact the front desk before the due date to avoid any late fees. Returned checks are subject to a $25 fee.
