Frequently Asked Questions

Do the Amherst Physicians see Children?
Yes, our providers specialize in caring for patients ranging from infants to seniors. Belonging to a family care practice allows the entire family to be seen at one location, which makes it easier to effectively and efficiently deal with any comprehensive family issues that may arise.

All of our providers participate with most insurance companies.

As an Elliot Family Medicine at Amherst patient,
can I call the office to get a prescription refilled?

Yes. The staff will take all the necessary refill information, including the pharmacy you would like your refill order sent. After your information is received, it will be sent electronically to your PCP to review and order. Once reviewed and approved, staff will electronically transmit the refill notification to your pharmacy. This process usually requires 24-48 hours from the time of your initial call. How quickly your pharmacy fills the prescription depends on their refill policy and staffing.

Who will I see if I am hospitalized or my child is hospitalized?
Pediatric patients will be followed by either their own primary care physician or by one of the other family practice physicians.

Adults may be followed by one of the Elliot family practice physicians or by the Elliot Hospitalist Service. The Hospitalist Service is composed of Board Certified Internal Medicine specialists who work closely with your primary care physician to provide the highest standard of care. The Hospitalist Service can often provide superior care when minute-to-minute decisions need to be made regarding patient care. In case of a hospital admission, your physician will determine which service is more suitable. This decision is often made on a case-by-case basis. In regards to admission decisions, you are welcome to discuss your preferences or concerns with your primary care physician.

Do you provide obstetrics care?
We are not currently taking new obstetric patients, however, our family practice physicians are fully trained in prenatal care, labor management, and deliveries. We can refer you to an Elliot Hospital physician for your Obstetric care and take care of your other medical needs during your pregnancy. Our Family Practice physicians do examine and care for newborn babies immediately after birth, at the request of the mother.
