Your First Visit
On your first visit to our office, you can expect to be greeted with a warm smile and “hello” from Dianna or Jackie. After a short office tour, we will guide you through the necessary new patient paperwork. We will attempt to make it as painless as possible. At this point, you will have the most thorough and comprehensive consultation and examination you’ve ever had which will help us determine how best we can help you.
On your second visit to our office, we will have you watch a short video on x-rays. This way you will understand your x-rays even better when we go over them. At this point, I will give you my report and my recommendations for care. We will go over the cost and explain all procedures. We want you to thoroughly understand everything we do. Also, we want no surprises.
The first and second visits usually will take between 30 – 45 minutes.
After that our normal office visit is usually less than ten minutes.
