What to Expect

At your first visit, you will be asked to complete a patient information form including insurance data so please bring all insurance cards, numbers, and referrals with you. If you need authorization from your primary physician, please bring it with you.

For your convenience, you may download, print, and complete the
patient information form prior to your visit.

You will then be interviewed at length, asked to provide a urine specimen, and then be examined. If you speak only a foreign language, we would appreciate your bringing an interpreter to facilitate communication. We do speak some Spanish and Italian.

We make every attempt to keep you well informed about your problem and its treatment. If for any reason you feel unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to ask. Your questions will be answered fully.

We will help you to complete any insurance forms. Patients are responsible for copayments, deductibles, and balances. In most instances, Medicare assignment will be accepted for office visits and lab tests. Annual deductible and coinsurance charges remain the patient’s responsibility.

If a referral from your primary care physician is needed please be sure to have it with you at the time of the visit.

If you change insurance plans, please notify us immediately.
