Office information

Office Hours


Office hours are 8:30-5:00 Monday through Friday. The office is closed from 12:00-1:00 p.m. for lunch. The office is closed for most major holidays.


For emergencies after hours call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Urgent requests after hours will be forwarded to the answering service who will relay the message to the physician.

Telephone Policy

It is not our policy to treat illness over the telephone.  If you are ill, make an appointment so we may see you in the office.  We do not prescribe antibiotics or any controlled substances (pain or nerve medications) without first examining the patient.

 We will do our best to handle minor problems over the telephone.   You will be asked to leave your phone number and a message.  Your call will be routed to the appropriate staff to answer your question.  Every attempt will be made to return your call promptly.  Our phones are answered from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.   Calls not within this time frame will be automatically forwarded to the answering service, which will alert the office or physician.  Non urgent messages received after 4:00 p.m. may not be returned until the next business day.


Patients are seen by appointment only.  If, however, you have an acute problem that needs immediate care, we will make every effort to work you in between scheduled patients.  Scheduled patients will have priority.  Please call beforehand so we may check the schedule for the most convenient time, minimizing your wait. 

 If you are more than 10 minutes late for a scheduled appointment, we may ask you to reschedule.  If you cannot keep your appointment we ask that you give 24 hour notice of cancellation.  No show appointments may be subject to a $25.00 fee. 

Office Visits 

On your first visit to the office, please arrive 30 minutes early so that we may obtain information essential to your care. To comply with identity theft laws, we require two forms of identification at your first office visit, one being a picture ID.  Please be assured that all information is confidential and none of your records will be released without your written permission.   

If you would like for us to obtain your previous medical records from another office or physician, medical record release forms are available from our receptionist or on our website. 

As you leave the office, please stop by the checkout window to obtain current charges and schedule your next appointment.  You will receive an appointment reminder with date and time.


Office visits are payable at the time of service.  We accept assignment with most insurance plans including Medicare, BCBS, Cigna, Aetna, Humana, and United Healthcare.  Deductibles and co-pays are due at time of service.  For your convenience we accept MasterCard and Visa. 

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company.   Responsibility for payment of the bill remains with you, the patient.  We will file primary and secondary insurance claims for you.  A statement of any unpaid balance will be mailed and will be due within 10 days of receipt.

Prescription Refills

We prefer to refill all prescriptions during routine office visits so we are able to maintain accurate records of your medications.  Please try to take care of this matter before you run out of your medication.  Since prescription refills need to be noted in your medical record, no routine prescriptions should be handled after regular office hours or on a weekend.  If you have been seen recently but forgot to have your prescription refilled, please call during regular office hours.

Many patients have prescription drug plans that require form completion or preauthorization.  We take care of the majority of these issues one day a week. Please give us ample time before you are out of your prescribed medication if form completion or preauthorization is necessary for your prescription drug plan.


Dr. Parish admits patients to Lourdes and Western Baptist Hospital.  If you need to be hospitalized, we will make the necessary arrangements.

Charges for hospital visits are completely separate from charges generated by the hospital, radiology or laboratory department.

Call Group

Dr. Parish shares call with Dr. Kenneth Cook, Dr. Aribee Martin, Dr. James Eickholz and Dr. Kyle Turnbo. 

Final Note 

We hope this information provides insight into our office operation.  We try to maintain the highest standards of medical care, while not forgetting the importance of compassion and understanding.  We hope that if you encounter any problems or differences you will talk to us about them so that we may solve them to your satisfaction.  We look forward to our relationship with you.
