WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN YOUR PRACTICE AND EAST HILL MEDICAL CENTER?

We are partnering with East Hill Medical Center, with the Medical Center handling some back-end operations, such as billing. This allows Dr. Duckett the ability to focus on patient care for Duckett Family Medicine. Because of this, you may receive bills from East Hill Medical Center, which are sent on our behalf.

DO YOU OFFER FINANCING OPTIONS?

We want to make sure that getting the healthcare you deserve isn't a cause of financial stress. If you have out of pocket costs, we offer a sliding scale fee is based on your income and family size.

WILL MY INSURANCE COVER MY VISIT?

We accept a variety of insurance plans. We'll even consider adding your coverage if we don't accept it already. To make sure this isn't a barrier to getting the best healthcare, we also offer a sliding scale fee to ensure out of pocket expenses are reasonable.

WHY DO I NEED TO FILL OUT PAPERWORK?

Dr. Duckett established this new office in October 2020. This means staff has no access to your medical records from the previous office at AMMS unless you provide us your consent to transfer your records. We are required to comply with security and privacy laws. We recognize it is an inconvenience, and thank you for your patience. 

DO YOU OFFER TELEHEALTH OPTIONS?

Yes, Dr. Duckett does offer telehealth visits depending on the presenting issue. Please contact the office to speak to a nurse to see if it's appropriate to address your concern.

HOW CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
