Patients are cared for by appointment. If you require same-day medical attention, please call early in the day to schedule an appointment.

Please note that you will have a consultation appointment with one of our physicians prior to any procedures being scheduled. Procedures are not performed during the first visit with the physician. Once you have been seen for your consultation, your procedure will be scheduled within 30 days.

Please bring your insurance card(s), photo ID, and a complete list of medications, specialist co-pay (if it applies) to your visit. All co-payments are due at the time of service.

If your insurance requires a specialist referral, please contact your primary care physician at least 3 days prior to your scheduled appointment.

If you have any questions or concerns about your bill, please call our office manager. If you have any concerns about your insurance, please contact your insurance carrier.
