Patients interested in being seen in consultation must have a physician referral and can reach us using the information above. We request patients provide all pertinent records including medical records, images, pathology reports, and other pertinent information before or at their appointment. This is to expedite your care. Please be aware your initial visit may take several hours as a complete history and examination will be performed. We provide comprehensive care which means that we spend a portion of each visit providing you with instruction and answering your questions. We believe that each patient should be given the time needed to feel comfortable with a new diagnosis, medication, or treatment. We suggest that you write down any information or questions that you wish to discuss with your physician prior to your visit.
