Your First Visit
We ask that you come 15-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment to give us time to get some of your medical history. We also ask that you bring your medical records with you if you have had a previous evaluation or treatment of your condition. It is very important that you bring a list of your current medications including the name, dosage and prescribing physician to each visit. We do our very best to adhere to your scheduled appointment time, however, because the practice of medicine often presents emergencies or unexpected patent concerns, there may be times we are running behind schedule. We realize that your time is very valuable and appreciate your patience and understanding if this should occur.
