How is our practice different?
We are primarily referral-based and our office is designed around the convenience of our customers, which include patients as well as our referring physicians. We can accommodate same day appointments from referring physicians if needed. Our referring physicians receive prompt follow-up; written and/or verbal, depending on their preference.
We have an experienced and efficient office staff, enabling us to see fewer patients than most physicians. This approach affords us more time with patients and their family allowing us to provide a more tailored treatment plan.
Our office records are all electronic. Prior to your appointment, we encourage you to log onto our website where you can enter your demographic information and medical history. Doing so beforehand will help ensure that your wait time will be minimal and your appointment smooth.
