Your Initial Visit
On your initial visit, please bring the completed medical forms we send you, medical records including labs or x-rays that relate to your visit with us, as well as a list of your current medications, dosages, and how they are taken. This information is always valuable, and may save you and your family an additional trip. During your initial evaluation your previous medical records, x-rays, and laboratory results will be reviewed, and a history and physical exam pertinent to your problems will be done. Additional tests will be ordered if necessary to help with your diagnosis.
The initial evaluation will generally take 1-2 hours depending on the nature and complexity of your condition. Therapy will be individualized. In some cases a probable diagnosis can be made, and therapy started, on the first visit. In other instances a specific diagnosis can be made only after the results of additional tests are available. If this is the case, our doctors may feel it is in your best interest to delay starting treatment until all of the results are available.
