Service Changes Due to Coronavirus

In line with Tarrant County Public Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, we will not be accepting in-person appointments at our offices effective Monday, March 23, 2020. We will not be offering Lipo-B Injections until further notice.

However, we are now continuing our patient appointments using telemedicine and telephone consultations.

NEW PATIENTS: We have a waitlist for new patient information. Please contact us so we can add you to this list. We will then contact you as soon as we have information on when we can begin scheduling in-office appointments. This includes patients who have not visited our offices for 18 months or longer.

Patients over 70 years old who have not had an in-person consultation with Dr. Puempel within the last 12 months will need to make an appointment for a telemedicine consultation.

For patients who have not had an in-person consultation within the last 90 days, please arrange a telemedicine appointment.

EXISTING PATIENTS: Keep your existing appointment time by using our telemedicine service or telephone consultation. We will contact you with instructions on how to do this.


Download, print and complete our Medical Refill Authorization (MRA) Form (link below) and follow the instructions on the form for your office. After review, your medication will be called into the pharmacy and your supplements will be mailed to you. (This option is for existing patients who do not require any changes to their treatment plan, including changes to medication).

EXISTING PATIENTS w) LAB/EKG UPDATES DUE: Postpone the LAB/EKG testing for ONE MONTH ONLY and choose an option from above. Should LAB/EKG become essential please contact us for further assistance and updates.

We will continue to care for our existing patients via phone and/or video consults during this time. We do not want to lose our valued patients and plan on resuming our in-person appointments as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to call us or get in touch with questions and/or concerns.

You can also check our Facebook Page for the latest updates.

Please bear with us as we implement these changes. Our phone lines are very busy and we are learning a new system and protocol. Thanks in advance for your patience! Remember, we are here for you to the best of our ability at all times.

Stay safe!
