In preparation for your first visit with our office, there are a few things you can do to get the most out of the time with your new provider. Be sure to bring all medications (in their bottles), vitamins, and supplements to your visit. If possible, request that your previous physician forward your medical records to us. But don't worry, if you can't get your records sent beforehand, we can always handle this request at your first visit. With your help, we will be much better prepared to fully address your concerns. Many patients find it helpful to write down the questions they would like to ask.
Please arrive to our office 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time so that you can fill out all the necessary office and insurance paperwork, or you may download the forms from this site and fill them out prior to arriving. During this time, our clinical staff will also be conducting a thorough interview to get your personal and family medical history documented in your electronic medical record. And please, dont forget your insurance card and a photo ID.
Depending on your condition or concerns, your initial visit with us could take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. After examining the records and information that have been supplied to us, your provider will conduct a thorough examination. We encourage you to ask questions, and we will be glad to address any concerns you may have.
