This is a brief overview of what to expect during your office visit, as well as some of the services we provide.

If you wish, it may be helpful to bring someone with you to listen and take notes during your visit. While you are cared for by many physicians, our care for you is quite complex, please call us first if you are being sent to the ER by another physician.

Appointment Time

Our goal is to see our patients as close to their appointment time as possible. We strive to keep waiting times to a minimum, please realize delays can occur due to emergencies and unforeseen patient needs. If you arrive more than 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time, you will be seen closer to your appointment time. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule.

Arrival

A Patient Care Coordinator will ask for your driver’s license or current photo ID and your insurance card(s). They will also ask to take your picture for your chart, so our medical staff can easily identify you.

A Medical Assistant will greet you to obtain your vital signs and review your current medications with you. Please have an updated medication list including vitamins, herbals, and over-the-counter medications.

Your physician will review and complete your health history, followed by a physical exam if indicated. He/she will discuss your diagnosis and management plan. If you have any questions about your diagnosis and/or treatment, please let your physician know; we encourage you to ask questions.

If your physician recommends treatment, it will be done in the treatment area of the clinic. In most cases treatment will not be started on your first visit, unless your physician has already discussed this with you.

Following your appointment, you will check out with a patient care coordinator, who will schedule your next appointment as well as any necessary tests or procedures recommended by your physician.
