How can I make an appointment with Dr. Hogan?

New patients can fill out a New Patient Approval Form and submit it to the office along with a copy of the front and the back of their insurance card. Once they are approved, we will notify the patient so that they can schedule a new patient appointment. Please note, Dr. Hogan will usually schedule additional time with new patients to thoroughly review their medical history.
Existing patients can call our office at (229) 333-0616 to make an appointment. When making an appointment, please be sure to tell our office staff the reason for your visit and all health related concerns you plan to discuss with Dr. Hogan.

What if I cannot make a scheduled appointment?

Dr. Hogan and his staff understand that sometimes unavoidable conflicts or unforeseen circumstances do arise and a scheduled appointment cannot be kept. However, missed appointments are missed opportunities for others with immediate health issues to be seen by the doctor. Please contact our office at your first available opportunity if you know you cannot keep your scheduled appointment. Please note “No Show” appointments are charged a $30 fee if they are not cancelled and/or rescheduled prior to the original appointment time.

What do I need to bring to my doctor’s appointment?

Please bring the following information to your doctor’s appointment to assist in quickly and efficiently getting you seen by the physician and out of the office as soon as possible:

  • Driver’s License
  • Insurance Card
  • Urgent Care/Emergency Room Visit information (if applicable)
  • Any applicable and available radiographic studies, such as X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, etc.
  • Any pertinent medical equipment, such as casts, boots, slings
  • Current medical list
  • To save time, please download Patient Information Forms (PDF) available on this site and fill them out in advance of your visit.

Does Dr. Hogan accept Walk-In Patients?

Dr. Hogan does accept Walk-Ins for those who are already established patients. We encourage our patients to come to the office as a Walk-In for acute medical problems instead of calling, leaving a message and waiting for a staff member to return the call. While not common, a returned phone call may take several hours on a busy appointment day, and patients may be able to receive a faster response as a Walk-In during those times.

Does Dr. Hogan perform sports physicals for student-athletes?

Yes, Dr. Hogan will perform sports physicals year-round for local student-athletes as a courtesy for the athlete and the local school systems. Most insurance companies do not cover sports physicals; therefore, Dr. Hogan only charges $20 for a physical, which is valid for a calendar year from the exam date. Because Dr. Hogan has a full schedule of patients to see each day, Sports Physicals are taken at the times listed below and are performed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sports participation physical forms are usually supplied by the schools: however a form can be downloaded from this site.

  • Monday – 8:00 to 8:30 am, 10:45 to 11:30 am and 3:15 to 3:45 pm
  • Tuesday – 8:00 to 8:30 am, 10:45 to 11:30 am and 3:15 to 3:45 pm
  • Wednesday – 7:15 to 7:45 am and 10:45 to 11:30 am
  • Thursday –  7:15 to 7:45 am and 10:45 to 11:30 am
  • Friday – 10:45 to 11:30 am

What if I need a prescription refilled?

Our office participates in e-prescribing. Please contact your pharmacy for prescription refill requests.

Will I have a long wait to be seen by Dr. Hogan?

Dr. Hogan and his staff work extremely hard to limit the amount of wait time each patient may have before being seen. Dr. Hogan’s patient day begins prior to office hours with early-morning hospital rounds and, at times, patient emergencies may arise to delay the start of his in-office schedule. Delays also occur when patients seeing Dr. Hogan add to the specific issues they originally cite when scheduling their appointment. We ask your patience when emergencies and delays arise, as Dr. Hogan and his staff are keenly aware of wait times and work diligently to get each patient seen and treated with thorough attention to their health care needs.
