For New Patients

WELCOME

If you are a new patient, you can familiarize yourself with our services by reading our Welcome Letter.

NEW PATIENT PAPERWORK

If you are new to our office, you can save some time at your first visit  by printing and filling out your patient paperwork at home prior to arriving for your appointment.  When you arrive to our office, much of your medical information will be added to our electronic health record using an iPad or similar tablet computer.

 

SCHEDULING AND CANCELLATIONS

When you call our office to schedule an appointment, we will make every effort to accommodate your time and request.  This appointment is reserved just for you so that there is adequate time devoted to your foot or ankle problem.  We respect your time and do our best to keep on schedule so that there is limited waiting for your appointment.  If you are going to be late for your appointment, please notify us as soon as possible.  If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please call us at least 24 hours in advance.  We are happy to reschedule your appointment to a time that best fits your busy day.

WHEN TO ARRIVE

For your first appointment, we request that you arrive 10 minutes early to allow adequate time for you to complete any necessary information forms.   The initial visit may require up to 60 minutes, depending on the nature of your foot or ankle problem.
