Published DateLACONIA – The Laconia Clinic's Internal Medicine Department has started offering Saturday morning appointments for adult patients.
Physicals, routine care, sick visits and follow-up visits may now be scheduled for Saturdays. Laboratory, X-ray and pharmacy services are also available during the new Saturday office hours.
There are two major benefits for the patients associated with the new Saturday morning hours, say officials at the Clinic, a department of Lakes Region General Hospital.
First, patients who are not feeling well, can call for a Saturday appointment, thereby avoiding long emergency room waits and saving money with lower office co pays.
Second, patients now have expanded opportunities for well-care visits. Patients that find it difficult to make doctor's appointments for physicals and follow-up visits during weekdays can schedule visits on Saturday mornings and benefit from the convenience of expanded hours.
The expanded hours are available for the following physicians: Alfred Aung, Michael Dipre,
Roger Gutner, Adora Maharaj, Valentin Milchev, Lawrence Rush, Ashley Warner, and Maireni Cruz.
