We know you have many choices when choosing a Gastroenterologist in Kerrville so we have made accessing the necessary paperwork a simple and convenient process via our Web site. To provide the best care possible, we require updated paperwork for all of our patients. We take pride in our patient care and do our best to ensure patient charts are up-to-date. We often require updates prior to scheduling an appointment to ensure office visits are about the patient, not about the paperwork. If, for any reason, you cannot keep a scheduled appointment or will be delayed, please call us as soon as possible. If you have an appointment and fail to contact us to cancel or reschedule the appointment, a fee of $25.00 will be charged to you.
