Schedule an Appointment
We suggest that you call 2-3 months prior to the time you wish to be seen for a routine exam. Please let us know of issues that may indicate that you need to be seen sooner. If you are having a problem, we will be happy to accommodate you. You may also request an appointment online.
At your initial visit, you will be asked to present your insurance card, photo ID, any necessary co-payments and to complete new patient paperwork. Your visit will be much more timely and efficient if your paperwork is completed before you arrive. These forms may be downloaded, mailed, or faxed to you in advance. If you anticipate completing the forms while in the office, please allow 30 minutes prior to your appointment to do so.
