What to Expect
Please arrive on time for your scheduled appointment and check-in at the front desk. Our front-desk staff may need you to verify certain demographic information, insurance data, and will require your signature on certain privacy notification and release forms. At this time, we will also ask you to pay any co-payment if applicable.
Once in the exam room, our clinical technicians will take your blood pressure, an EKG, your weight and review with you your medication list. Your doctor will evaluate your medical history, any prior test results, and conduct a physical exam. Your doctor will discuss the results with you and recommend a treatment plan and possible additional testing which can be scheduled upon your check out. We encourage you to ask questions.
We also have an excellent staff of nurse practitioners, clinical technicians and patient coordinators who are here to make your visit with us as comfortable as possible and help you with any questions or concerns that you may have.
