How often should I get a physical exam/check-up?

Depends on age and status of medical condition, but as a rule patients should receive a physical exam once a year.

If I just see a nurse or nurse practitioner, will the physician be notified of my reason for being there?

Yes, Dr. Akers is notified and consulted for all visits.

What health insurance do you accept?

We accept most insurance policies. Paramount, however, is one with which we are not in-network, so we do not accept.

If I am sick, can I walk in or do I need an appointment?

Walk-ins are not accepted. However, a call to schedule an appointment could get you in on the same day (depending on availability).
