Preparation Tips for Your First Visit

On your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can create your medical record. It may be helpful to have a family member or trusted friend accompany you to the visit. In addition, you may want to make a list of questions prior to your visit so you will not forget to ask the doctor.

While our surgeons make every effort to attend to you in a prompt manner, due to the nature of our specialty, emergencies can arise and delay your appointment. We appreciate your patience.
