Please contact your care center to prepare for your appointment.

Established Patients

As an established patient, we ask that you arrive in our office 10-15 minutes early for each appointment. We will need you to verify your address and insurance information and from time to time complete any necessary paperwork.

If you have insurance forms, such as disability, that require some portion of it be filled out by your physician and/or his signature, please bring them with you to your next appointment.

You will need to check in with the Front Desk at each visit so that we may verify that you have not had any changes since your last visit. i.e., address, phone, insurance changes etc.

The Physicians and Staff will do all that we can to stay on schedule. Unfortunately with our specialties, we have patients that come in for a regularly scheduled appointment, who have relapsed or have developed complications that require more of the physician’s time than we allowed for. We ask your patience if this should happen, as we know you would want the physician to spend the necessary time with you if this unfortunate occurrence should happen to you.
