Making an Appointment

You can make an appointment using our online service or by calling our office directly. 
 


Your Appointment

On your first visit, we will begin a permanent record. Please bring any medications you are taking, so that we may accurately determine the dosage and frequency. We will ask you to complete the medical history and registration form. Please bring your insurance card and try to arrive at least thirty minutes early for your first visit. If you have been under the care of another doctor, we may ask your permission to transfer some of your records.
 


Making Appointments

We have three appointment categories that take up varying amounts of time:

  • New Patient Visits - Plan on spending one hour including check-in time, filling out forms and the actual physician visit.
  • Follow-up Exams - Thirty minutes
  • Sick Visits - Varies depending on your symptoms, but plan on at least thirty minutes
 

Canceling an Appointment

Our appointments are confirmed by an automated service. Please listen carefully and follow the prompts to either confirm or cancel your appointment. If you later decide that you are unable to keep your appointment or you are going to be late, please call your physician's office as soon as possible. This courtesy allows us to be of service to other patients.
 


In Case of Emergency

If you have an urgent problem, you may call your physician's office to schedule an appointment. However, if you feel it is a life-threatening emergency, call 911. Do not delay by calling the doctor's office first.

 


Prepare for your visit

If you feel you might have an endocrine or metabolic disorder, make an appointment with your primary care provider.

Here's some information to help you get ready for your appointment, and what to expect from your doctor:

Write down your symptoms, including when they started and how often they occur.

  • List your key medical information, including any other conditions for which you're being treated and the names of medications, vitamins or supplements you're taking. 
  • Log details about your recent diabetes management, if you have diabetes. Notes for your doctor should include the timing and results of recent blood sugar tests, as well as the schedule on which you've been taking your medications if any.
  • List your typical daily habits, including alcohol intake, meals, and exercise routines.
  • Take a family member or friend along, if possible. Sometimes it can be difficult to soak up all the information provided to you during an appointment. Someone who accompanies you may remember something that you missed or forgot.
  • Write down questions to ask your doctor. Creating your list of questions in advance can help you make the most of your time with your doctor.
