After hours, Dr. Tate or one of her associates will be available for urgent situations or emergencies. Instructions for contacting Dr. Tate, or the doctor on call, are available by calling our main number 408-358-1888. You can also leave a message for less urgent matters. If you do not get a response within 20 minutes, the doctor on-call may be attending to another patient, please call back. Please note there may be a charge for non-urgent advice calls.
A refill request must be made during normal business hours; there may be a charge for refills made after hours. The last authorized refill serves as a reminder to you of the appropriate time for follow-up
In general, Dr. Tate prefers to meet with her patients face to face. However, in cases where the patient prefers to speak by phone, telephone consultations are available by appointment, at the same fee schedule as a comparable office visit.
Matters of a sensitive nature are apt to be discussed in the office; all communications are strictly confidential. The only exception is when required by law. If you are under the care of another physician for an active problem, please request that your records be sent before your first appointment. The law requires that such a request be made in writing. Also, please bring the names and dosages of all medicines that you are taking, especially if you need a refill. The receptionist may request more information over the telephone, for appointments other than annual exams. This additional information allows us to schedule sufficient time for your visit, particularly if the issues are complex.
