Your First Well Woman Visit

Thank you for selecting my office for your women's health care needs. My goal is to meet your needs and to exceed your expectations. I know you will find my medical assistants and the office staff ready to help you in any way they can.

On your first visit to the office, it is helpful to arrive 20 minutes early in order to fill out the registration information. Some of this information can be completed at home to save time. The forms can be downloaded from the New Patient Link. You may also come by the office and pick up the forms before your scheduled visit.  

Please make your Well Woman appointment at least 4 months ahead of time.  We will send you a reminder via email or text when it get close to your appointment.

Please Mail, Fax or bring your information back to the office at least 24 hours before your appointment so we can get you entered into the electronic medical record and check your benefits.
 

When you call for an appointment, the scheduling staff will ask for the reason for your visit. This helps us schedule the appropriate amount of time. All of our staff are very aware of the confidential and sensitive nature of our patient's concerns. If you are scheduling a "Well Woman Exam" (annual exam) and also have health problems you wish to discuss, please alert the staff when you schedule your appointment so extra time can be allotted to you. Otherwise there will only be enough time scheduled for your Well Woman Exam and you will have to reschedule for your other problems.

It is useful to have copies of any evaluation, treatment, lab or x-ray reports sent to me prior to your visit so that I may review them. Your provider can mail or FAX them to my office at your request.   

PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFER OF YOUR RECORDS AT LEAST 3 WEEKS IN ADVANCE.
 

If you have never had a pelvic exam or are not sure what to expect, please visit the ACOG web site on "Your First Visit". It will explain the exam in detail for you, and hopefully answer most of your questions.

 If you have Medicare, please review the online booklet "Cervical Cancer Screening"  It explains what is and is not covered by Medicare insurance. You should have received a booklet when you enrolled.

 

Please try to be on time for your appointments. Punctuality helps us to see our patients at their scheduled appointment time. We consider your time and ours very valuable and make every effort to keep our office running on time. Since we do practice obstetrics, emergencies occasionally take us away from regularly scheduled appointments.

If you are going to be more than 10 minutes late, please call to let us know. 

If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, let us know at least 24 hours in advance.

If you are a New patient and cannot keep your appointment, please let us know 48 hours in advance. We schedule additional time for your first visit to our office and would appreciate knowing well in advance if you cannot make it so another patient may be moved into you appointment slot.

My practice does include delivering babies and performing surgeries. Occasionally you will find the office running behind schedule. Sometime by several hours. Normally this is caused by a delivery I had to unexpectedly perform during office hours or a surgery that didn't start when we scheduled it. We get "bumped" by the hospital when there is an emergency surgery and have to wait "our turn"  in line.  Please be understanding with us.  You can always reschedule if you cannot wait. We will get you in as soon as we can.

We always try to notify everybody when the office is running late. We can send text or email messages if you provide us with your information.


I look forward to meeting you and becoming your physician.
