We have three office locations to serve you – Downtown, Sacramento, Carmichael and Roseville.

Of necessity, our offices must work by appointment. A sincere attempt is made to adhere to the office schedule as much as possible. Office hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The offices are closed on Saturday and Sunday.

When making your appointment to see the doctor, consider which office is most accessible to you. Records will be maintained at that location. If you make an appointment with one of our physicians and are unable to keep it, please call as far as possible in advance to cancel so that we may use the time for other patients.

For your first appointment, please arrive thirty minutes early to fill out all necessary paperwork. At subsequent visits, please advise the receptionist of any change in address, phone number, insurance, etc that has occurred since your previous visit.

In order to help you prepare for your office vist we have provided information that can be accessed either by clicking the Office Visit link or by navigating to that page by using the menu on the left.

During office hours, our office personnel will answer the telephone. They are trained to help with your problems. Emergency calls will be handled promptly. Less urgent calls may be returned at a time when the physician is less occupied. Should you have an urgent colorectal problem at a time when our office is closed, call the telephone number of the office where you are normally seen. Our telephones are forwarded to an answering service and your message will be relayed to the surgeon on call.
