WALK-IN POLICY

Visits with our providers are by appointment only. We prefer that you call to make an appointment or speak with our nurse. If you decide to walk into the office it is likely that you will have to wait until a nurse is available to speak with you. If you are ill, it’s best to first call to speak with a nurse, so that your needs can be addressed and a plan appropriate to your level of urgency can be set up for you.

RESULTS

After you have blood tests done, if the results are normal you will generally not hear back from the nurse. Please feel free to phone us if you are curious about what your specific results are.

PHONE CALLS

When phoning the office the general procedure for handling your call is as follows:
Receptionist will help you if they are able. If not…
Receptionist will take your message and have the nurse phone you back. If you are ill you should hear back from the nurse as soon as possible.
If you are phoning about prescriptions, test results or any other non-urgent matter you will hear back from the nurse by the end of the day. They will certainly call you back as soon as they can.

FORMS

When leaving any type of form for one of our providers to complete please allow a minimum of 1 week for it to be completed. We will call you when it is available to be picked up.

MEDICAL RECORDS

When making a request for medical records please contact receptionist at the practice. If you are picking the records up yourself please allow 1 week for us to prepare them.

PRESCRIPTIONS

We appreciate advanced notice of your prescription needs. We ask that you call the office to discuss prescription issues rather than stopping by. For your convenience you can now leave the nurse a voice mail with your request. Prescriptions that you request Monday through Thursday will be phoned in within 24 hours. If you phone on a Friday they will be phoned in by 6 pm that evening.

APPOINTMENTS

We reserve the right to charge for appointments, cancelled or broken without 24 hours advance notice. If you are late to an appointment please be aware that you may be asked to reschedule your appointment to later the same day or to another day.

Provider Spotlight!

Dr. James Stuart, Surgery Associates of York Hospital, has been on staff here in York since January of 1974. While the “usual” background information regarding his education and medical training
is interesting to know, even more interesting is the institutional history and the anecdotal information that Dr. Stuart has stored up the sleeves of his white coat after more than four decades of being a provider and a caregiver at York Hospital! We would like to take this opportunity to share a bit of both types of information. Dr. Stuart received his BA from Albion College in Albion, Michigan, and his MD from | Wayne State University College of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. He completed a Rotating Internship at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and a Residency in General Surgery, also at Maine Medical Center. Dr. Stuart is Certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow at the American College of Surgeons.

Back in the 1970s when Dr. Stuart joined York Hospital, there were no ambulances for the hospital. The local undertaker transported patients to the hospital in a vehicle similar to a modern hearse. When ambulances did start being used to transport patients to York Hospital, it was Dr. Stuart who trained the first EMTs riding on the ambulances. In 1974 there were 10 physicians total at York Hospital. If you stop Dr. Stuart in the hall today, he will still be able to tell you their names and what most of their work schedules were! On most Saturdays, the physicians would eat lunch in the cafeteria together – oftentimes with other employees or patients’ families. Another example of the kind of tight-knit community that defined York Hospital even back in the 1970s is that when Dr. Stuart performed surgeries, the assistant in the OR was typically the patient’s referring doctor, as opposed to another general surgeon or first assist.

These anecdotes illustrate that the philosophy of Loving Kindness has been an important aspect of how York Hospital has grown over the past four decades, and that Loving Kindness has guided Dr. Stuart as a physician, a caregiver and a colleague for more than 40 years. Kudos to Dr. Stuart—thank you for being an ambassador for York Hospital and a role model for all of us!
