Please download, print and complete our three (3) new patient forms and bring these with you to your visit. If you have not brought your completed forms with you, expect some additional time for completing these forms. Be prepared to answer questions about your health history, including all current medications and allergies. Please arrive 15 minutes prior your scheduled appointment time to allow for your new chart creation.

On occasion, the doctor may be running later than usual due to an emergency or other unusual or unforeseen problem. Our staff will keep you apprised. Magazines, practice information, and video or TV are available. We politely ask for your patience as all patients are given the time they need.
For general Dermatologic visits, we recommend complete skin exams for all new patients and at periodic intervals. However, you may decline this; tailoring your visit to your desires. Nonetheless, please remove or do not wear make-up to your visit to facilitate your exam. Avoid excessive jewelry, as well; especially prior any procedural visits. Also, please wear clothing that facilitates your anticipated evaluation / exam and/or treatment. Please turn off cell phones/mobile devices in exam rooms and otherwise, use cell phone etiquette in public waiting areas.
