Normal Business Hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Saturdays 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Extended Hours: There are 2 Tuesdays each month with extended hours until 6 pm. We have extended hours when Dr. Summers is in the office for new patients (usually occuring every other Tuesday), as he alternates between morning new patient sessions from 9 am to 12 pm and afternoon new patient sessions from 2:00 pm until 6 pm each Tuesday. Below (at the bottom of this page...keep scrolling) you will find a list of the upcoming dates and times that we see new patients at this clinic location.
Transfer Patients: Patients who have already been seen at one of the other clinic locations are welcome to transfer to the Montclair Road location. All you need to do is show up at our clinic location and sign in as a return patient and make sure you tell our staff that your are a first time transfer from another location (and be sure to circle YES on the sign in sticker where it asks if you are a first time transfer, as this will help our staff know to create a new chart for you that will be kept at our location instead of searching for a chart that has not yet been made). As long as you have been seen at one of the other clinic locations with Dr. Summers within the previous 2 years then you are considered a return patient when you walk in to transfer to the Montclair Road location. Transfer patients are considered return patients and do NOT have to start over as a new patient.
Return Patients: As long as you have been seen at any clinic location within the past 2 years then you are STILL considered a return patient at the Montclair Road location. You do NOT have to start over as a new patient if you have taken a break from the program for a few months! Getting off track happens sometimes even when we have the best of intentions. We understand that this is a hard process and are here when you are ready to start again! We do not make you start over just because we haven't seen you for a few months. We also do not think that just because you have gotten off track for a few months that you are back to square one and need to totally start over. We believe that you know what you need to do! Now it is time to do it! Just drop back in as a return patient, as if you haven't missed a beat. We will welcome you with open arms and help you get back on track!
Scheduling New Patient Appointments: New patients are required to schedule an appointment. Please call us at 205-582-9316 to schedule an appointment. You may also message us via Facebook messenger to schedule a new patient appointment. Return patients are welcome anytime we are open (including during new patient days) without an appointment, although, wait times are much shorter for return patients if they avoid new patient day times. Return visits can be much faster than new patient appointments, although we are always happy to help you with anything you need additional assistance with and/or are happy to spend as much time with you as you need to ensure that you have a successful weight loss journey! Don't hesitate to reach out and let us know how we can help you!
***Reminder: If you are a return patient please read the post from earlier today so you know if you are required to see Dr. Summers upon your return visit, as our staff can often help you. As mentioned in the earlier post NOT all return patients are required to see Dr. Summers each month in order to obtain medication refills (although patients ARE required to be seen in person once monthly by our staff). The post from earlier today explains these rules in detail. We stress this information due to many return patients being under the impression that they must see Dr. Summers in person each month and this is not correct, as our staff can usually help you any day that we are open (6 days each week).***
