Appointments

Patients are seen on an appointment only basis. When scheduling an appointment be sure to inform the staff of any insurance information, including those that require a referral, thus helping to eliminate delays in providing services. All patients are required to present their current insurance information and a photo ID. In the event you need to cancel your appointment, kindly advise the office as soon as possible, at least a 24 hours notice is preferable.

Treatment of Minors

If the appointment is for a child under 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must accompany the child to their first appointment. The child will be treated at follow-up visits only after a dated record of consent has been completed.
