Appointments and Access to Care

In an effort to maximize access and convenience Temescal Creek Medicine provides several different ways for you to interact with your doctor. We believe patients should be able to access health care in ways that best suit their needs. For some this may mean office visits, for others telephone or email appointments, even house calls. Your choice! We strive to provide the care you want and need, when and how you want it.


Office Visits
  • Standard Office Visit $175
  • Good Health Review $350
The Good Health Review is our opportunity to evaluate, review and dialogue about the health factors that impact your vitality. These factors include behavior and lifestyle choices, family medical history, preventive care needs and the status of ongoing chronic conditions. The Good Health Review is also an opportunity for us to better understand you in the context of your REAL life and therefore provide personalized, relevant advice and counsel for your health.


Office Visits are available Monday through Friday. To request an appointment contact us @ 510 230-2372 or Request Appointment by Email *

*New Patients: We will call you to complete appointment set up and ensure you have all your questions about our practice answered.
**During office ours we strive to turn around email appointment requests within 4 hours. After hours requests will be answered the next business day.


Alternative Visits
  • Email Visit $85*
  • Phone Visits $85-$170*
  • Skype Video Conference Visit $85-$170 *
We realize that there are medical concerns that may appropriately and effectively be addressed without having to come into the office. You have a choice of a scheduled telephone visit, email exchange or Skype video conferencing  with your doctor, whichever is most convenient and appropriate for you. A telephone or email visit that takes the place of what otherwise would have been an office visit will be charged at the Alternative Visit rates listed above.   When appropriate, these visits can offers allow significant savings and convenience . There will certainly be times when we communicate via telephone or email that are not "visits" and there is no fee.
