Inclement Weather

Please check local television stations and/or their websites for announcements regarding clinic closures in inclement weather. Patients should call the clinic before coming in during inclement weather.


Most appointments are made after receiving a referral from a primary care physician or specialist. If you have questions about making an appointment without a referral please call 479-404-2110.  We request you call at least 24 hours in advance to reschedule or cancel if you are unable to keep your appointment time. Frequently missed appointments will incur a fee of $45.00 not covered by insurance. 

Please bring a list of all medicines you are taking to every appointment. For your first appointment, we will also need you to bring your insurance cards, photo ID, and completed paperwork if mailed. 


Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery accepts Medicare Assignment and participates in most major health care plans available in Arkansas. If you have questions about specific insurance plan coverage please contact our office. 

Deductibles and co-insurance amounts are collected at the time of service. To make special arrangements regarding money due please call the office and request to speak with our Patient Accounts Representative. 

Medication Refills

Please call your pharmacy when you need medication refills. Requests for pain medication refills must be made Monday - Thursday prior to 2:00 p.m. Nurse calls and prescription refills after 2:00 p.m. may not be addressed until the following business day.
