Our goal is to provide the highest quality family medical care for acute and chronic problems as well as preventative medicine. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service from our friendly and resourceful professional staff.
We value your opinion and encourage you to provide frequent feedback to us. Please call the Clinic Director anytime you have a concern or compliment for our staff. We also encourage patients to participate in the random patient surveys that are sent out on a monthly basis so we know how well we are meeting your needs.
KMG accepts most insurance plans including Health Alliance Medical Plans. Please contact your insurance provider for specific coverage information. All new and existing patients are asked to bring their medications with them to their appointment. Co-payments must be paid at the time of check-in. We accept cash, check and Visa/MasterCard. Non-covered services must be paid for at the time of service.
DOT Physicals: Requirements have changed and additional documentation is required for your medical examiner to complete your DOT physical. To help us complete your DOT physical in a timely manner, please bring with you to your visit all medications you are currently taking, eye glasses if you require correction to your vision, hearing aids if you wear them, medical records for any medical conditions you are being treated for (if we are not your PCP). Please call our office for assistance or questions pertaining to the information you will need to bring. Having your test results and letters from your treating physician will help us certify you more easily. If you do not have the required information, we will not be able to certify you and you will need to come back with this information. Most chronic health conditions including high blood pressure will only allow us to certify you for one year or less. If you have a history of high blood pressure, take blood pressure medication, or have a blood pressure 140/90 or higher at the time of your visit, you will not be given a 2 year certificate.
We follow the Department of Transportation guidelines in the Medical Examiner's handbook to determine if you meet guidelines for CDL medical clearance and the length of time you may be certified. It is YOUR responsibility to report to your employer and your examiner if a serious illness, injury, or surgery occurs during the time you are certified. For those instances, you should have medical clearance before returning to work.
If you fail to pass your exam due to misrepresentation or a disqualifying medical condition, you will still be responsible for paying for your DOT physical.
Cancellations: We request that patients who are unable to keep an appointment contact our office at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time since there are usually other patients that could benefit from this time slot. Repeated missed appointments may result in dismissal from the practice.
Medication Refills: To ensure that your medication needs are met in a timely manner, we request that you call your pharmacy at least 48 hours in advance and fax a refill to (217) 762-1702. Please keep in mind that your provider prior to the refill being authorized will review your medical record. Some medications require periodic lab tests and follow-up appointments to monitor the effectiveness of the medication. You will be notified if lab work or a follow-up appointment is needed. In addition, there are very strict controls for all drugs containing an opioid substance. These types of medications require an original written prescription. Therefore, patients are required to see their provider every 30 days for these medications.
