New Patients

What to Expect at Your First Visit

When you arrive at our office for your first visit, we will need to see your insurance card(s) and your driver’s license (or other valid picture identification). We will scan these into our computer system so that you will only need to present them at your first visit of each year or if your insurance changes. Unless you have already completed the two new patient forms, we will ask that you complete those forms prior to seeing the doctor. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.

New Patient Paperwork

Once the paperwork is completed, one of our Podiatric Assistants will escort you to a treatment room where you will be asked to remove your socks and shoes from both feet, even if your complaint involves only one foot. The doctor will ask you questions about your medical history and assess your feet through an examination and some basic tests. If x-rays or ultrasound examination are needed, those can be performed in our office with results immediately available to the doctor.

If you have medical records, x-rays or other diagnostic test results which may be relevant to the reason for your visit, please bring those with you as they may assist the doctor in his assessment, diagnosis or treatment recommendations. In many cases, we may be able to begin treatment of your condition on the first visit. However, no treatment will be rendered until the doctor has discussed with you his assessment and treatment recommendations.

Prior to your visit please read our Insurance Information for an explanation of our financial policies. Our physicians and staff members have only one purpose for being here – to provide you with the best podiatric medical care available. Your feet have to last a lifetime, and we want to help you make that happen.
