Frequently Asked Questions

Just so you feel more comfortable with us, we thought we’d provide a list of things you may be wondering about, and just go ahead and give you the answers! Of course, if your question isn’t on the list (or even if it is), just give us a call, and we’d be happy to help you find your answer.

Q: Where can I get the patient forms they told me I needed to print and fill out?

Those are available right here! And thanks in advance for doing that… you are helping us more than you know!

Q: Can one or two family members or caregivers accompany me into the examination room at my appointment?

Of course. In fact, special attention was given to the design of our exam rooms, so that they could accommodate  a patient in a wheelchair, a couple of guests, a nurse, an intern and the Doctor- all at once!

Q: Is the office wheelchair accessible?

Absolutely. In fact, the whole building is wheelchair accessible.

Q: When does the clinic see patients?

Dr. Gazda and Dr. Neiman maintain regular business hours, typically Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, with after-hours emergency calls handled through our answering service.

Q: How do I make an appointment?

If your insurance does not require a specialist referral from a primary physician, you may simply call our offices (210-692-1245) to arrange for an appointment. If you do need a referral please contact your primary care doctor for details.

Q: What if I have to change an appointment?

While we understand that unexpected events do happen, we ask that whenever possible you provide 48 hours notice for an appointment cancellation or change so that we can continue to give all of our patients the maximum amount of time and attention at their appointments.

Q: How do I obtain refills on my prescriptions?

Calling your pharmacy is usually the best method to obtain refills on your prescriptions. If needed, they will contact our office for approval. You may also call our staff for assistance. Please allow at least 24 hours or one business day for refill approvals. Refill requests should always occur during business hours. If you have not seen the physician in over a year, a visit will be required to optimize safety.

Q: What should I know about insurance issues?

We participate with most insurance providers in the region. You can get more specifics on our insurance information page.
