Q. Are you accepting new patients at both offices?

A. Yes, all of the doctors in the practice are accepting new patients.  Same day appointments are often available.  If you require a specific time and location, appointments are usually available within two weeks.

Q.  How do I make an appointment?

A.  Office visits are available by appointment only.  Appointments for follow-up visits are generally made at the time of your previous visit.  Please call us one to two weeks before your planned visit.  When making appointments please provide our staff with as much information as possible so that we can allocate the proper amount of time for your visit.

For acute problems, we will try to work you into our schedule on the same day that you call. 

Q.  Do I need a different kind of appointment for cosmetic vs. medical visits (Botox, Juvederm, Sclerotherapy)?

A. To properly serve you, we do need to know why you will be seeing the doctor.  Certain procedures are only available at specific offices or by specific physicians.  Also, some procedures do need to be scheduled at separate visits to ensure we provide the best possible care.  When calling to make your appointment please inform us of any special needs you may have you ensure you are correctly scheduled for your treatment.

Q.  Do minors need to be accompanied by an adult when they see a doctor?

A.  Yes, all minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the first visit.  Where appropriate, a consent form can be signed to allow children to be seen without a parent or legal guardian for follo-up visits.

Q.  Will I get a reminder call?

A.  Yes, we usually call or text  two days before your appointment.  If there is no answer, we will leave a message if you have an answering machine.
