Internists provide primary care for adults. Fox's internists provide that and more.
Indeed, our internal medicine department offers a broad range of services to its patients: preventive healthcare, acute medical care, pre-operative consultations, gynecological services, maintenance injections (B12, allergy desensitization), specialty consultations, screenings for colon cancer and echocardiograms, to name a few. As part of their specialty, our internists also provide care in pulmonary medicine (breathing and lung problems).

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Tuesday: 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Appointments

Office visits are by appointment only. We make every effort to see our patients on time. To help us maintain an efficient schedule, please arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow for registration. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for a sick visit, you will be asked to wait for the next available appointment slot. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for a well child check or follow-up, you may be asked to reschedule the appointment. All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Please call 24 hours in advance if you cannot keep a scheduled appointment. Please call as early in the day as possible if you are sick and looking for a same day appointment

Prescriptions

Please call (607) 431-5290 for routine prescription renewal requests and have the following information prepared:

  • Your name and the patient's name and date of birth
  • Your phone number
  • The name of the medication, dose and how often it is taken
  • The name of the pharmacy you use
  • Any special instructions (e.g., 90 day supply)

Please allow 48 hours for your request to reach the pharmacy. Requests received on the weekend will be processed by the end of business, Monday.

Sick Visits & After-Hours Care

IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911.

Same-day sick visits

We offer same-day appointments to all sick patients who need one. Please call as early in the day as possible, and expect to speak to a nurse who will work with you to determine if a visit is needed.

If you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until the morning, please call (607) 432-5600 and remain on the line to reach the answering service. They will contact our highly-trained nurse triage service, and a nurse or nurse practitioner will call you back. Please keep your line open and disable private number blocking. If you do not receive a call back in 20 minutes, please call again. A physician from our practice is always on call when needed.

Weekends and holidays

The clinic is closed on weekends and holidays.

We will not prescribe antibiotics over the phone if we have not seen you for the illness. Antibiotics are powerful medications for bacterial infections (not viruses) and can cause many problems when they are overused.
