We look forward to discussing your treatment plan with you and welcome all questions. Please bring the following items to your first appointment:
Your first visit will consist of a thorough medical history and physical examination. You will be seen by a nurse, a physician assistant and the physician. This initial evaluation may take up to an hour, because a full and complete assessment is a key component in developing your customized treatment plan.
Due to the length of this examination, and various other factors such as insurance authorizations, please do not expect medications or injections during your first visit.
Please try to arrive 15 minutes early for your visit, and call at least 24 hours in advance if you must cancel. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment it may need to be rescheduled. Appointments canceled less than 24 hours in advance will be considered a no-show and after 3 no-shows you will not be rescheduled.
