Your first visit to our office is a consultation and will last from 45 to 60 minutes. During the consultation your doctor will discuss your condition and determine a treatment plan if one is indicated. Due to space constraints, only one other person will be allowed in the exam room with the patient during the patient/provider examination.
Follow up visits are scheduled at the end of each visit.
Patients who are late for their appointment and/or check-in time may need to be rescheduled.
It is our office policy to refill prescriptions only during clinic hours. This means that refills will not be given after clinic hours and/or the weekend. We also will not refill early prescription. Medications are to be taken ONLY AS PRESCRIBED. Opiate or scheduled medications WILL NOT BE REFILLED without an appointment.
