Big Spring, TX
We are located on the campus of Scenic Mountain Medical Center.
Electronic Medical Records
FMC recently made the switch to EMR (electronic medical records) in order to better serve our patients. First-time patients will receive a temporary pin, which can be changed upon the first login, to allow them access to a summary of their visit. Most summaries are uploaded and able to be viewed within 24 hours. We also ask that first- time patients arrive 30 minutes prior to their appointment to allow time for new patient paperwork to be filled out.
At FMC, we understand that your time -- and our provider’s time -- is valuable, so we ask that if you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please call and let us know at least 24 hours in advance. We will reschedule your appointment. We charge a no-show fee of $25 for appointments that are not cancelled prior to this timeframe.
