Scheduling Your Appointment
Digestive Health Specialists will be pleased to schedule your appointment during regular business hours:

Friday, 8:00am – 12:00pm.
To arrange an appointment please don’t hesitate to call one of our patient representatives at 334.836-1212.
We know your time is precious so following the registration steps below will help expedite your initial visit. Because our specialists want to provide excellent care, it is important that we receive a thorough medical history before your examination.
- Please print and complete the patient information form included on our website.
- Please print and complete the Patient Registration Form.
- Please arrive fifteen minutes prior to your appointment time so that any paper work may be processed before your visit. The patient representatives will make every effort for you to be seen at your regularly scheduled time. To speed up your visit, it is important that you bring your current health insurance cards, as well as your co-pay and a referral from your primary medical doctor if applicable.
- If your insurance plan requires a referral authorization form, it is necessary that you call your primary medical doctor to arrange for them to issue a referral. Without this prior approval of the referral, your insurance will not cover the cost of your visit which at that time you will then become responsible for all charges. The primary medical doctor may fax a copy of the referral to our office at 334-836-1888; mail the referral to our office at 480 Honeysuckle Road, Dothan, AL 36305; or you may bring the referral with you at the time of your visit.
If you have an emergency or need assistance after hours, please go to your nearest emergency room.
We look forward to becoming your healthcare partner! Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have at 334.836.1212
