New Patient Info

We ask that you arrive to your first appointment 30 minutes early to give you enough time to fill out paperwork, take x-rays if needed, etc.
(You may also print and fill out New Patient Paperwork here. Please print all 5 pages front side only, and fill out in ink.)

**IT IS THE PATIENTS’ RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW THE AMOUNT OF THEIR “SPECIALIST” CO-PAYMENT THROUGH THEIR PERSONAL HEALTH INSURANCE AT THE TIME OF THE VISIT. IF THE PATIENT HAS A COPAY AND DOES NOT KNOW THE AMOUNT, WE WILL COLLECT $75.00 AT THE TIME OF THE APPOINTMENT.**

All patients under 18 must have their legal guardian with them at the time of the appointment. If an adult who is not the legal guardian is accompanying a minor to their appointment, they must have a letter from the parent(s) verifying that they are allowed to make medical decisions for the patient
