Office Hours: Appointments are available Monday through Friday. With early morning and evening office hours we try our best to accommodate patient's busy personal schedules. If you have an acute problem such as an infection, or are in pain, please let our staff know so they can arrange for you to be seen as quickly as possible. If you are unable to keep your appointment, call us to reschedule. We appreciate 24 hours notice on cancelled appointments so other patients can be seen. A parent is required to accompany their children under 18 years of age for their visits.
When you arrive for your first visit we ask you to bring your insurance card with you, and if required, a referral. Although we will be treating your foot or ankle condition, it is important for us to know the status of your general health , what medications you are taking (including nonprescription medicines) and if you have any allergies. The following form is our Welcome Sheet. If you wish, you may print the form off your computer, fill it out at your convenience and bring it with you for your first visit.
