Office Hours and Appointments
Our office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Monday through Friday. Patients are seen by appointment Monday
through Friday by one of our physicians. Appointments may
be scheduled by calling 1-361-993-8510 or 1-800-779-3482 during
regular business hours. Bilingual assistants are always available.
If for any reason, you are unable to keep your appointment, please notify our office. This will make it possible for another patient to be seen.
We provide emergency service to our patients
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
On weekends, holidays, and after office hours when the office is closed, you can reach our physicians by calling the medical exchange answering service 1-800-779-3482 or 1-361-993-8510. The exchange will refer your call promptly and our staff will return your call as quickly as possible.
We encourage you to call the office if you have
a problem or a question or need to get in touch with us for
any reason. Please make non-emergency calls between 9:00 a.m.
and 5:00 p.m. when your records are readily available to the
physician. Out of town patients can call our toll free number
1-800-779-3482 for our Corpus Christi office, or 1-800-300-5388
for our McAllen office.
If you are calling to have a prescription refilled, we ask that you call during office hours so that we will have your chart available to make sure that a refill is the best course of treatment. I have the phone number of your pharmacist available in case our physician needs to discuss your medication. We will return your call as promptly as possible.
Insurance and Billing
At South Texas Retina Consultants, our goal is to provide the eye care services you need without creating a financial burden. We are participating physicians with Medicare and Medicaid. We also accept most HMO's, PPO's, and vision care plans. Our financial counselors will be happy to verify your insurance coverage at the time you schedule an appointment. All you need do is ask to speak with them.
