Patients are seen by appointment from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. Each physician has a unique schedule for office visits and surgeries and may have unavoidable delays due to surgeries or unexpected emergencies. We will inform you if there is a delay. However, if you feel like you have been waiting too long, please inform the front desk receptionist. Every effort will be made to accommodate you should we need to reschedule.
Please Bring the Following Items To Your Appointment:
- X-rays, Test Results & Medications
For a complete review of your condition and the most prompt treatment, always bring x-rays, CT and MRI scans and their reports along with test results, and medications to your appointment. Please note that we need you to bring original (hard copy) films or a CD that contains the images to your appointment.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out our pre-registration forms. You will receive a packet of information, including registration forms, directions/map, information regarding our financial policy, and a medical questionnaire.
