Your first visit
On your first visit, you will be asked to give us a photo identification card, your insurance card (if you have coverage) and some basic demographic information. For a faster first visit, bring in your filled-out paperwork. Just download these forms, print them, fill in your information and give them to the receptionist.
We will also take your medical history during your first visit to ensure that you are given the best treatment plan possible. It is also important to bring in a list of medications you are currently taking, as well as a list of allergies you may have.
