If you have difficulty with the form or wish to fill out a paper form please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment in order to maximize your time with Dr. Lynch.

Can I get a same-day appointment? Do you offer walk-in clinic services?

No. Due to the amount of time we spend with each of our patients, we generally do not offer same-day appointments or walk-in clinic services; however, we do keep a "cancellation list" and if asked to be on it, we will call you should we have any openings before your scheduled appointment. If you are having an emergency please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency department.

Are your services covered by my private insurance?

Do to the nature of our specialty, we do not accept private insurance as payment; however, most of our services are covered by private insurances (and Medicare). We are considered "out of network". Please feel free to call our clinic for more information. We will, as a free service to you, send a claim to your insurance company on your behalf. Since the majority of the services we offer are covered by most insurance plans, it is very likely that you will recieve a full or partial reimbursement.

Do you prescribe narcotics or other controlled substances?

No. We do not prescribe controlled substances, including narcotic pain medication, for any reason. If your pain is such that stronger pain medication is warranted, we will refer you to a pain management specialist or recommend you to the nearest emergency department.
