Consultation / Office Visit

Consultations and Office Visits

consultFor new patients to our practice, your primary care physician will contact our office on your behalf to request an initial consultation at any one of our 6 office locations. All forms and driving directions will be emailed to you via your NextMD Patient Portal Account. Reading and completing all forms on NextMD will improve the accuracy of your records and save time at your visit.  If not completed via NextMD, please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for our staff to input your information.

At your initial visit, the physician and possibly the physician’s assistant will see you. After your treatment plan has been discussed, follow up visits will be with your doctor or physician assistant based on your condition. Some individuals prefer following up with a physician assistant, who offer high quality care, and often have earlier appointments available.

We work hard to educate you about your insurance coverage. By working together, the maximum insurance benefit can be guaranteed.  We do require all copays, deductibles and coinsurance to be paid at the time of service.
