Be Prepared for Your Appointment

- If necessary, bring a referral. Check with the receptionist when you make an appointment to see if you need a referral.

Making the Most of Your Visit
Please allow sufficient time for your appointment. If you are an existing patient, we ask you to allow at least one hour for your visit. Feel free to call the office just prior to your appointment time to ask if the doctor is on schedule.
To make the most of your visit, it’s helpful to prepare a list of questions and bring a list of all medications you are currently taking. This list will be noted in your medical record.
During your appointment, be sure to review your treatment plan and medications with your doctor. If you need additional information, educational materials are available for you to take home.
Be sure to request medication refills at the time of your office visit. If you need refills between office visits, please call during normal business hours. Provide the name of your medication, the dose, frequency and your pharmacy’s telephone number. Allow up to 48 hours for the prescription to be called in to your pharmacy.
If you have not been examined in the office within the past year, we request you have an office visit prior to medication being prescribed.
Cancellations/No Show Policy
If you must cancel an appointment, a 24 hour notice will allow us to schedule another patient in that time slot. There will be a $100 charge for any diagnostic studies or vein procedures that are not cancelled within 24 hours.
