Before Your Appointment
You will be asked to fill out the information on the Registration Form and

health insurance company requires a referral from your primary care physician
(PCP), please ask your PCP for a referral and submit that information to our
office.

If you must cancel your appointment, we ask that you kindly give 24 hour
notice. Please be advised that any cancellation within 24 hours will be charged
a $25.00 cancellation fee. If you fail to keep your appointment, you
will be charged a $50.00 No Show Fee
