Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Behavioral Science

All Overlook Family Medicine practitioners need to know how to manage their patients' behavioral health needs as well as understand their own feelings and thoughts about the doctor-patient relationship. Our residents work with our behavioral science director to provide appropriate treatment and improve their skills. This training involves:

  • Precepting cases
  • Discussion of video-monitored or recorded patient encounters
  • Small group (Balint) discussions of physician-patient relationships and challenging cases
  • Monthly observation of a psychiatrist's consultation interview with one of our patients
  • Teaching sessions led by patient educators
  • Conferences covering a wide range of behavioral science topics
  • Collaborative care of family medicine patients with the behavioral scientist and the family medicine social worker
  • Teaching programs in medical humanities
  • Clinical work and educational programs in ethics and palliative care
