NOTICE TO PATIENTS SEEKING TO ESTABLISH CARE
Thank you for choosing us as your healthcare provider. We look forward to providing an environment and provider relationship that meets your and/or your family’s medical needs.
It is important to us that we are honest with our community about the recent challenges we are facing and what this means for our patients. At Southwest Medical Group, we pride ourselves on usually having low waiting times for providing care. However, our current physician-to-population volume necessitates a wait list be created for new patients seeking to establish care. Our current wait time to get established with a primary care provider is one to three months (depending on the provider).
To establish care with any provider in the Southwest Medical Group, you must first submit your new patient packet. This is to address the urgency of your needs and pair you with the right provider. Please click the links below to download the appropriate form.
Print it, fill out the forms, and deliver them to our New Patient Coordinator at 1311-A North Mildred Road in the medical office building on the Southwest Memorial Hospital Campus. You can also email it to Kelsey Cate, at firstname.lastname@example.org, mail it to us, or fax the paperwork to 970-564-2019.
Scheduling is generally based on openings, but we are happy to check the availability of a specific provider by request. Please be aware that we are experiencing a high volume of new patients so you may have to wait for an appointment. You can always use our Walk-In Clinic or visit the ER if you have an emergency before your scheduled visit.
