Frequently Asked Questions

Emergency information

If you are experiencing a true emergency situation, please call 911 or get to a hospital immediately.  Life Medical Center is ready to help you for your urgent and minor emergencies which can be treated locally at our facility.

What can I expect at an appointment?

You will be greeted when you visit our facility and be asked to sit in the waiting area unless you are in an emergency situation.  If this is for a non-emergency visit, you will be asked to complete your registration if you are a new patient.  If this is a well visit or checkup, we suggest arriving 15 minutes early to your visit.

We also urge all of our patients to complete their registration ahead of time by visiting our Life Medical Center Patient Portal.

What happens if I am a new patient?

If you are a new patient, you will need to complete the new patient registration information, which can be found here.  Please ensure that you have answered all questions to the best of your ability and with as much thoroughness as possible.  The more accurate information you provide, the better chance we have to ensure timely and complete attention to all of your healthcare needs.

We ask that you bring proof of identification and your insurance information so that we can quickly and easily process all transactions.

Do you have Imaging and other equipment available?

Yes, Life Medical Center is equipped with the latest healthcare technology on-site to make sure that we can respond to your healthcare needs in a single visit, saving you time and money and putting your health as our top priority.  Life Medical Center has equipment such as x-rays, EKG, echocardiogram, Doppler and Holter monitors available to care for our patients.

Do you examine children at your clinic?

Life Medical Center is prepared to handle all medical situations for all ages of patients.  We have medical professionals available who have been in many different environments and have worked with pediatric units.  Our facility has all of the tests, treatments and medicines necessary to ensure your children are cared for safely and will become life-long patients.

What happens if I need a prescription?

We are happy to provide a traditional paper script or electronic script for any medicines that our physicians deem as necessary for your care.  We will work with you to ensure that we select the most appropriate medicine and also one which will treat you in the most cost-effective way by understanding your insurance specifications.

Do I need a referral?

For most urgent care needs, you do not need to have a referral in order to be seen.  For other types of visits which are generally considered well or check-ups, you should also not need a referral.  We suggest you contact your specific insurance carrier to review the requirements of your program.

Do you accept my insurance?

Life Medical Center accepts most recognized insurance companies and we are happy to review any which are currently not in our approved list.

Do you have parking facilities?

Yes, parking is available with accommodations for elderly and handicap visitors.
