Congratulations on your pregnancy and we thank you for choosing our practice for your prenatal care and delivery.
We are happy to be your Obstetrician.
It is our goal to make you feel comfortable in our practice and to meet all of your requirements. Please ask us for any special requests that you may have and we will try our hardest to meet your needs. When the office is closed, all calls are forwarded to the answering service. Therefore, you can call our main number: 405-360-1264 at any time.
Our providers proudly deliver both vaginal and by cesarean at: The Norman Regional HealthPlex.
We would like you to know some basic information about the way our office works…
You will be asked to complete a health history prior to your first visit. This allows us to have complete and accurate information at the time of your visit. We also ask that you bring copies of your past medical records if you have them in order to assist with obtaining a complete medical history. Please know that we respect your health information and your privacy is very important to us. All of your personal health information will be kept strictly confidential.
You will need to bring your insurance card, driver’s license, and co-pay with you to every visit. Insurance company contracts state that we must collect co-pay from you at the time medical services are rendered. Several insurance companies require a referral from your primary care physician before you can be seen by an OB/GYN. Please call your insurance company to verify if this is required and obtain the referral prior to the date of your appointment. We will be unable to see you if the referral is not complete.
Prescription refills will only be done during office hours. The on-call physician will not be able to provide any prescriptions or refills after regular office hours. She does not have access to your chart or any of your information. Please keep this in mind and try to call a week before you run out of medication. If you need a refill, you will need to call your pharmacy, let
them know which medication you need. They will fax a “refill request” to our office. The nurse will then fill out the needed information and fax it back to the pharmacy. Please allow 24 hours for this process to take place.
As doctors dedicated to women’s health care, we strive to see each patient in a timely manner. However, due to the nature of our practice, we may be called to deliver a baby and/or handle a hospital emergency. Due to these issues, there may be a delay from our appointment time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we will try our best to keep you updated on any unexpected wait. We are committed to providing the best care possible to all of our patients.
We are always available to answer your questions. Please be aware that at certain appointments, we can only discuss certain issues. For example, if you are scheduled for a “well-woman” exam, and we discuss other issues or complaints, your insurance company may not pay for that visit. When you call to schedule your appointments, please let us know if you have other issues that you need to discuss so that we can schedule a separate appointment for you.
Our nurses will contact you by phone or by Patient Portal with your test results. Please keep in mind that some of the lab work we order takes several days to weeks to be completed. We understand that waiting can cause a lot of anxiety, and we will notify you as soon as possible.
Coverage After Hours
We understand that most of our patients prefer to have their own doctor present at delivery. We also prefer to care for our own patients. However, please understand that it is impossible for any physician to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The six physicians in this office share call coverage for our patients. We try to deliver our own patients during office hours, but turn over care of our patients to the on-call at night and during the weekend. It is also important to note that calls after office hours and during the weekend should be limited to emergencies only. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Payment is required at the time of service. We accept cash, cashier’s checks, and personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Cards.
If you have any questions that have not been answered, please feel free to contact us and ask. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your health care. We appreciate you.
Please COMPLETELY fill out all applicable information and submit once complete.

Ask your physician’s front office for these credentials at your visit. When you connect to the portal, you are NOT connecting to our actual office computer system, but a secure web site hosted elsewhere.
Once you are logged into the Portal, you can navigate to look at your appointments, request future appointments, look at your medication list, and look at your lab test results. You can also send and receive messages from our office, and appointment reminders. Feel free to explore the portal.
The messages do not go directly to the doctors and nurses, but to our Web Portal Coordinator. She will route your messages to the appropriate staff.
To look at your medication list, click on “Refill Requests”. To look at your lab, look at the bottom left part of the screen “Lab/Diagnostic Tests”. If you have a smaller screen size, you may need to scroll down to see it.
Your confidentiality is important to us. When you connect to the portal, you are NOT connecting to our actual office computer system, but a secure web site hosted elsewhere. Only the limited information you see is stored on the portal, your actual records are maintained in our office. If you need to change your password, or simply wish to deactivate the service, let us know.
