Appointments

You are important to us. Quality care for each patient is very important at Women’s Health Center. When you come in for an appointment, we do our very best to see all patients in a timely manner. Unfortunately, there are times when Dr. Mager is called to leave the office to go to the hospital. In the event that the doctors are unable to return to the office, we will communicate with you the option to reschedule with your doctor or be seen by one of our other providers. Please remember, your understanding is essential. Dr. Mager may be called away to the hospital one day to see you, a friend or a member of your family.
 
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, we reserve the right to reschedule you to another day. Please call us if you are going to be late for your appointment.
  • Recurrent no show appointments will result in a release from our practice. 
  • All appointments are scheduled in advance. 
  • We do make exceptions for emergencies. 
  • Non-emergent same day appointments are based on availability.
