Lyme Disease Information

Summer is a prime time for outdoor fun and for ticks! Because Lyme disease can spread to humans through tick bites, it's important to take precautions when you're outdoors. To help you understand more about how to stay safe this summer, we created a guide for you to reference! Check out our article to learn more about the causes and symptoms of Lyme disease, how you can prevent it, and ways to check for ticks.

Practice Overview



Appointments & Referrals

We always allow a few appointment times to see a sick patient. Sick children are seen on the same day if the parent calls in the morning. Sick adults are normally worked into the physician's schedule on the same day.

When You Visit

Please bring your insurance card to each and every appointment.

Prescription Policies and Information

Prescriptions and refills will be handled at scheduled office visits and enough medicine will be prescribed to last at least until the patient’s next appointment. Since we expect to fill prescriptions at the office visit, running out may be a signal that it is time to call our office to schedule an appointment. We request patients be seen annually for routine medication refills. If your prescription insurance plan requires a prior authorization for a medication, you will be responsible for obtaining a Prior Authorization Form from your insurance company for your physician to complete.  While our office staff and physicians do their best to help patients obtain their maximum prescription benefits, insurance plans, including drug coverage plans, are a contract between the patient and the patient's insurance company. 

If you need to change pharmacies or change your prescription to mail order, the law in the State of Ohio permits non-expired prescriptions to be transferred to the new pharmacy without charge or interruption. In the case of most mail order pharmacies, they disregard this provision and require prescriptions to be re-written. In the event that this is preferred by the patient BEFORE their next routine visit, the patient has a couple of choices: 1) make an appointment to see the doctor for repeat refills, 2) wait for their next regular visit to change pharmacies, or 3) pay a fee for the patient's physician to review their medical records and re-write the prescription - which will then need to be picked up at the office.  Lost prescriptions for controlled medications (such as pain medications, sleeping aides, etc.) will not be replaced.

We discourage the practice of calling in prescriptions as it does not allow the patient or the doctor to re-evaluate the appropriateness of the prescription, and follow the condition for which the medication has been prescribed. We do not accept calls from pharmacies to refill medications. When pharmacies call us, we request contact directly with the patient.  

Summer Health Risks

With the summer season’s fun in full swing, it’s important to be aware of potential health and safety risks that can impact your family. To help you ensure a positive season for the whole family, we have information about some common risks and the precautions you can take.

SameDay Care Centers

Our SameDay Centers deliver excellent care that’s a cut above the typical Emergency Room and Urgent Care experience, at a significantly lower cost. By choosing one of our SameDay Centers, you can be seen after traditional hours or when your regular physician is unable to see you that same day.

Pediatric Nutrition Classes

Is your child a COPC pediatric patient? If so, our free classes can help you learn practical tips to improve your family's nutrition! Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist facilitates each class and will give you the most up-to-date recommendations for your growing child. Children who attend will be engaged with activities and food samples to help expand their knowledge as well as their palate. Check out our pediatric nutrition page to see how you can get started!

After-Hours Support Center - (614) 865-3125

If you are a COPC patient, the After-Hours Support Center is available to help you find the care you need. When you call our After-Hours Support Center, a Nurse Practitioner on staff will address your concerns and guide you in the right direction. Mondays - Fridays from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm and weekends from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, our nurses can help you schedule appointments with your COPC physician, refer you to a SameDay Center, and help you with prescription refills until you can reach your COPC physician’s office directly (limited to small quantities of your current medications only.)

Pediatric Support Centers

Our Support Center provides care to COPC families that’s exceptionally better than the traditional Emergency Room and Urgent Care experience, at a significantly lower cost. Scheduling an appointment (through your child’s COPC pediatrician) with our Pediatric Support Center allows your child to be seen by one of our outstanding pediatricians after typical office hours and on weekends.
