Oregon Integrated Health strongly encourages the use of interpreters for medical translation. Patients, however, may decline the use of free-of-charge interpreter services and choose to use family members or friends. If this occurs, the provider will document that the interpreter services were declined.
Please note that federal law prohibits the use of minor children as interpreters.
When you are registering or calling for an appointment, please make sure OIH staff are aware of your need for an interpreter and have record of your primary language. They will then coordinate efforts to ensure that a competent medical interpreter, fluent in English and your primary language, will be present for your appointment(s).
Generally, requests for appointments require 72 hours notice but may be expedited based on interpreter availability.
LATE OR MISSED APPOINTMENTS
LATE TO APPOINTMENT POLICY
Late Appointments are considered if you arrive 5 minutes or more past your appointment. You will likely be asked to reschedule unless the provider’s schedule can still accommodate you. Priority will be given to the patients who arrive on time and you may have to be worked in between them. This may mean you will have a considerable wait. If this is not convenient for you, you may choose to reschedule. We strive to see every patient as close to their appointment time as possible.
We ask that you please be courteous of your provider’s valuable time and attention. The providers, office staff, as well as your fellow patients will thank you.
MISSED APPOINTMENT OR “NO-SHOW” POLICY
Our office requires 24 hour notice if an appointment cannot be kept or needs to be cancelled. You can call our main office number between 8am and 5pm. If before 8am or after 5pm, please leave a message on our voicemail.
We make every effort to provide reminder calls, text messages and emails 48hr and 24hr before your scheduled appointment.
All “No Show” appointments are tracked within the patient’s medical record. There is a $50.00 fee attached to all “No Show” appointments subsequent to the first offense. Every patient receives a text message at the end of day reminding them they missed an appointment at the clinic that day. Each patient is called the following business day and provided an opportunity to reschedule. If you have pending future appointments these will be cancelled unless you confirm that you will be attending these appointments. After three (3) missed appointments, the practice may at its discretion choose to discontinue your care.
If inclement weather is effecting your travel to the clinic for your appointment, please call the clinic ahead of time to reschedule – we will do our best to call you as well if our clinic is closed.
