Please plan to arrive at our practice 15 minutes before your appointment time to complete the registration process.
If your insurance requires a referral, please be sure to bring it to your appointment. Also, please bring your insurance card(s).
To ensure your physician has the information he or she needs to provide you with the highest quality care, please arrange to have any medical records or test results from other physicians sent to the practice at least one week prior to your appointment. Please complete the Welcome Packet and Welcome Questionnaire forms and bring both with you to your scheduled appointment. To download PDF copies of both forms, please visit the New Patient Forms page.
Medical records and test results may be faxed to the practice in advance of your appointment.
Please sign-in at the front desk upon arrival. The front desk staff will verify your personal information; provide you with any forms necessary for your visit; and inform your physician's medical assistant of your arrival.
To ensure your visit will be covered under your insurance policy, we will need to confirm your personal information at each visit to our practice. This will minimize your out- of- pocket costs.
If your insurance company requires a referral, please present it to a member of the front desk staff. Any co-pays or other fees required by your insurance will be collected at the time of your appointment. We accept all major credit cards.
We know your time is valuable, and we will make every effort to see you at your scheduled appointment time. Unfortunately, emergencies, complications, and other issues may lead to unexpected delays.
If your physician is running more than 15 minutes late, a member of our staff will advise you of the expected wait time. If you are waiting more than 15 minutes and no one has come to speak with you, please inform someone at the front desk.
You will receive a Visit Guide from the front desk staff when you register. The Visit Guide provides a place for you to write down issues or concerns you want to bring up with your physician and/or to take notes to remind yourself of important information your physician provides during your visit.
Once you are in the exam room, a medical assistant will ask you preliminary questions and record your vital signs. If your physician is delayed, the medical assistant will keep you informed. Depending on the nature and complexity of your tests, the timing of results may vary widely. If your physician orders tests during your appointment, please ask him or her when you should expect to learn about the results.
We participate in a variety of insurance plans. Please check with your insurance carrier to verify that your examining dermatologist participates with your specific plan.
