Advance Directive & Advocate Designation


Michigan Advance Directive &

Michigan Patient Advocate Designation Form

The attached forms protect your right to refuse medical treatment you do not want or to request treatment you do want in the event you lose the ability to make decisions yourself.

The Michigan Patient Advocate Designation lets you name someone to make decisions about your medical care — including decisions about life support, mental health treatment and anatomical gifts — if you can no longer speak for yourself. The patient advocate designation is especially useful because it appoints someone to speak for you any time you are unable to make your own health care treatment decisions, not only at the end of your life.

HIV Testing & Information

HIV Rapid Testing with Results in Minutes

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the virus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).  An HIV test will tell you whether you have been infected with the HIV virus.

We offer a rapid test which is performed on a specimen of blood. The results are available to you in about one hour.  If you test negative on this test no further testing is necessary and you are negative.

Consent Form For HIV Test


The HIV test looks for infection with the AIDS virus.
I understand that if this test shows that I have the HIV virus, I am most probably infected and could spread this to someone else.  I could pass the virus to someone I am having sex with, someone I am sharing a needle with, or to my unborn baby if I am pregnant.  If the test results are negative for the HIV virus, I understand I might still have the virus but that it is too early to tell by the HIV test.

Prescription Refill Policy



Date:  October 21, 2010

Background: To maintain an efficient office, provide quality medical care, and avoid any possible prescription abuses, an office policy should be maintained and followed for prescription refills. This policy needs to be clearly communicated to the entire staff and all patients.

Policy: All prescription refill requests should originate from the patient by contacting their pharmacist asking to request the refill electronically.  All refill requests should be approved or disapproved by our office in 24 hours or less. The reason for any disapproval should be given electronically through RxNT.  Routine prescription refills may not be fulfilled during the weekends, so patients need to plan ahead.
