Dr. Schiff-Slater completed his residency at the Maine Dartmouth Family Practice Residency Program in Augusta, Maine. Dr.Murray-James completed his residency program in Lewiston.
We ask that you be responsible for anticipating the need for prescription refills. Requests may take up to 48 hours to process after we receive the message. All medication refills phoned in after 4:00 pm on Monday through Thursdays and 11:00 am on Fridays will be handled the next business day by our office. **Due to an influx in calls related toCOVID-19, we have set up a refill line that you will be transferred to.**
Please note: if Prior Authorizations are required with your insurance, additional time might be needed for processing.
AFTER-HOURS AND WEEKENDS

Our providers can be reached by calling the MaineGeneral Medical Center switchboard at (207) 626-1000, request to have our on-call provider paged. Our providers rotate the on-call coverage for after hours, holidays and weekends.
Our lab is open Monday through Friday 8-9:00.
No appointment is needed if one of our providers has ordered labs for you. Lab results: Once your provider has reviewed your labs you will be notified by mail or phone. If you do not hear from us within 2 weeks for routine labs, please call our office.
