WELCOME TO OUR PRACTICE
Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, Lexington Medical Associates combines the traditional values of a small family practice with innovative medical advances. Our patients are our priority and our mission is to provide them with the highest quality personalized care. We strive to create an environment where patients feel comfortable and are able to foster a strong and open relationship with their doctor. Giving our patients the time, sensitivity, and care they deserve is of utmost importance to us. With total attention during your visit and timely follow-ups, we will achieve your trust. We are glad that you have chosen our practice for your healthcare.
The following is important information, so that you understand the way the office works for you - the most important person in our Practice.
APPOINTMENTS AT LEXINGTON MEDICAL
Everyone is familiar with how appointments work, and in theory, appointments make a lot of sense.
People reserve a time, show up, spend exactly the right amount of time there, and everything runs smoothly. As anyone who has spent hours waiting for an appointment will attest, that system rarely works the way it should. In medicine, there are simply too many factors that can cause the system to stop functioning, resulting in long wait times and unhappy patients.
At Lexington Medical we have adapted a modified appointment schedule to help suit the needs of our patients and effectively reduce wait-time.
We schedule an appointment time for extensive / elective visits (such as annual wellness exams & pap smears) and/or follow-up exams such as (diabetes screening & cholesterol checks) . If you know that a visit will be required to have your medications continued, please plan accordingly so that you do not run out of your medications. If a follow up appointment was advised by your provider, please schedule this prior to leaving the office so that you will have more choices of times and days.
We accept same day walk-in patients for sick visits, sti screen, vaccinations and immigration physicals. For our walk-in patients, no appointment time will be given, walk into our office during regular business hours & you will be seen by one of our providers.
Dr. Liakeas and the staff at Lexington Medical Associates are dedicated to providing ongoing quality care for our community. Like most physician offices around the country, we have incorporated the use of midlevel providers into our practice to meet the needs of a growing patient population. This includes physician assistants.
As part of a team approach, you may be seen by one of our qualified midlevel providers during one of your patient care appointments or walk-in visits. This helps us maintain timely access for our patients. You can be assured that each of our trained and skilled midlevel providers are closely supervised by Dr. Liakeas and will provide the topnotch care you expect and deserve.
OUR CONCIERGE MEDICINE PROGRAM
Over the years, some of our patients have requested a Concierge Medicine Program offering enhanced access combined with an annual executive quality physical. Our concierge medicine program is designed to meet the needs of those patients. The program offers a one-on-one & personalized health care solution with
George Liakeas, M.D. , along with an array of first-class conveniences designed to fit your health, work, and lifestyle needs.
Membership requires the payment of a fee. Please contact our Concierge Coordinator at (646) 973-5098 or click here for details.
NO CONCIERGE MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED TO BE A LEXINGTON MEDICAL PATIENT
At Lexington Medical Associates our goal is to establish long term relationships with our patients. Thus, we consider all of our patients as valued members of the Lexington Medical family. New patients are always welcome and we do not require a patient to be part of the Concierge Medicine Program in order to be seen by one of our health care providers. Lexington Medical is staffed with dedicated professionals and all of our patients can expect quality medical care. However, we have also established the Liakeas CCPHP for those patients wishing to be part of a Concierge Medicine Program.
POLICY FOR CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES
Due to the increasing burden of Federal and State mandates and regulations regarding the prescribing or refilling of Federally controlled substances, effective April 1, 2015, Lexington Medical Associates will no longer offer these prescription refills for patient pick up, by telephone or email.
To receive or secure a refill on these controlled substances, an appointment with one of our providers will be necessary. It is our office policy, to transmit these prescriptions electronically from our providers and, can only be refilled from our office. As per our current policy, no controlled substance refills can be offered after hours or on weekends.
If multiple controlled substances are requested, we urge you to ensure that these refills are coordinated for the same office visit in an effort to save additional visits and co-payments. Where possible, as allowed by law, refills will be considered on these prescriptions
We apologize for this inconvenience but unfortunately current and impending regulations impose an inordinate burden on both you and our staff.
