Become a Patient

Become a New Patient

We are currently accepting new patients into our practice. Thank you for considering us. To become a new patient:

  1. Make an Appointment
  2. Sign up for our patient portal
  3. Download your patient forms online through the patient portal

When you come to our office for the first time as a new patient, we'll ask you to complete some initial forms, including an Authorization and Consent for Treatment form, if you were not able to download them from the patient portal in advance of your appointment.

To make sure there are no delays in care during your first visit experience, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to ensure your registration is complete before meeting with your new provider.

Remember to bring:

  • Your insurance card
  • Valid photo ID
  • List of current medications
  • Office co-pay

In an effort to respect the time of all of patients, our staff strives to stay on schedule so that other patients do not have to wait.

For patients who are delayed and arrive late for appointment, every effort will be made to see them the same day. However, wait times may apply, or appointments may need to be rescheduled.
