Patient Information

Appointments

Appointments are preferred and often available on the same day. You can reach us by calling 860-284-4945. For your convenience, our office is handicapped accessible. Ample parking and public bus transportation are also available.

We accept most major health insurance plans. However, please confirm whether we accept your specific health insurance at the time you schedule your appointment. Our staff will gladly answer all of your questions. Please feel free to call our offices during regular business hours.

After-Hours Calls

You can reach your doctor’s office 24-hours a day, 7 days a week by calling the office phone number. The doctor on call will discuss your child’s symptoms and direct you to the right place for care. For non-emergent after-hours care, our office is supported by ProHealth Express Care walk-In centers. Our Express Care centers offer high-quality medical care with shorter wait times than an ER. The cost is the same as a regular office visit co-pay. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, always go to your nearest emergency facility or call 911.

 

Commitment to Education

Our goal is to bring you the best healthcare possible. Quality education and training are key. ProHealth Physicians of Farmington and the University of Connecticut School of Medicine have joined together in a program called the Student Continuity Practice. The physicians at ProHealth Physicians of Farmington have been chosen by the University as a training site for future doctors. Each doctor will serve as a mentor and instructor to a medical student, supervising his/her education.

Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants

ProHealth Physicians of Farmington is pleased to have nurse practitioners and physician assistants as a part of our care team. They are certified medical professionals who are crucial to our practice’s success.

Physician Assistant

A physician assistant has a master’s degrees in Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS), Health Science (MHS), or Medical Science (MMSc). PAs work in collaboration with a licensed physician.
