Office Policies


We see patients by appointment only.  We are not a walk in clinic.  We can often get you in the same day for an acute problem or the next day.  We ask that you call as early as you can and speak with our receptionist who will work with you to get you in to see the Doctor as soon as feasable.  We call to remind you of your appointment 24-72 hours prior to your visit.  If you need to cancel we ask that you do so at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment so that we may fill it with someone else who needs to be seen.  

Prescription Refills

We make every attempt to fill your prescriptions while you are seeing the Doctor for your routine appointments.  We ask that you check your bottles before you come in so you can tell us how many refills you have on each prescription.  If you run out between visits you can call Dr Popeil's nurse to call you in a prescription to get you through until your next visit.  Prescription refills are not an emergency and can not be done on Weekends or after office hours.  


Dr. Popeil is a participating Medicare Provider.  We also take traditional Blue Cross and Blue Shield.  All deductibles, co-payments and coinsurances are expected to be paid at the time services are rendered.  We accept personal checks, cash, Visa, Mastercard and Discover.


If you are experiencing a life threatening problem, you should call 911 immediately.  For other urgent problems that cannot wait until our scheduled office hours, Dr Popeil or one of his associates covers call for our patients 24/7.  They can be reached via our answering service.


Our office has a lab on the premises for the convenience of our patients.  Labwork is performed on a first come, first serve basis.  We usually have you get your labs about a week before you see Dr Popeil for your routine visit, so that he may discuss the results with you and answer any questions you may have,  at the office visit.

Hospital Affiliations

Dr. Popeil has Privileges at Ocala Regional, Munroe Regional, and West Marion Hospitals.  He has a set of Hospitalists (hospital based physicians)  he is affiliated with,  who are always available at each of the hospitals and  will admit his patients should the need arise.  He is in contact with them and has access to all the records and tests, in real time, from admission to discharge via the hospital internet portals.
