We recommend printing and completing the New Patient Form and appropriate Questionnaires Form for your follow-up visit. This reduces your waiting time in our office and allows you the convenience of completing the form in the comfort of your own home. The application form for your first visit provides us with valuable information. Even if it portions of the form seem unimportant or not related to your symptom please be very thorough as it is important for an accurate diagnosis.
Please do not assume that the medical information from your primary care physician or referral will provide us a detailed history of your disease and previous treatments. It is imperative that the form is accurate to also prevent unnecessary tests and to avoid ineffective therapies. Please bring your medications, previous labs, X-rays, MRI reports and actual images with you.
The new patient questionnaires will guide us to monitor your response to therapy and adjust the medications if it is necessary.
During your first visit your picture will be taken and your information will be entered into our Electronic Medical Record system. This will prevents errors due to similar names, date of birth, etc. It also serves as a memory aid while we talk to you over the phone.
Your consultation appointment with the doctor is usually between 35 to 50 minutes and follow-up visits between 20 to 25 minutes.
