Schedule Appointment

Usually Dr. Groat will see patients on an appointment basis only. However, when necessary, we will be happy to work a patient in for an emergency. If you are experiencing problems, please call our office. We will arrange for you to see Dr. Groat as soon as possible. Our office hours are from 8 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday. To schedule an appointment during our office hours, please call us at (850) 243-1255 or (850) 892-6760.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible. Our physician makes every effort to keep his patient’s appointments on schedule. Emergencies do arise, however, and sometimes a delay is unavoidable. When this happens, we do all we can to minimize the inconvenience.

Insurance Information
We participate in most major health insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider at the outset of treatment to ensure that you are covered for your treatment (and at what level) and to be sure that we are listed as a provider in your plan. It is the patient’s responsibility to check their insurance plan coverage.  At time of visit we will attempt to verify coverage and benefits as well.  To avoid unpleasant and expensive surprises, we strongly encourage our patients to carefully research the specific provisions of their health insurance coverage. Insurers typically deny coverage if you do not meet their provisions. It is the patient’s responsibility to know the specific requirements of their coverage, and to inform our office of all special requirements. It is important that you bring your insurance card to every appointment. If you change insurance companies or change your address, phone number, etc., please contact our office as soon as possible so we can make the necessary changes to your file.
