Our first visit with your patient will usually be for a consultation only. The amount of time required for this initial visit will depend on your reasons for sending this patient to us so please specify all your reasons for making the referral.
Once we have completed the initial exam we will present our treatment recommendations and financial estimates. Each treatment plan is custom tailored to the specific needs of the patient. Depending on the reason for the referral, we may treat the patient once then return them to your office for all future care or we may see them on a regular basis indefinitely. We base our treatment recommendations on disease activity and patient input. Regardless of the outcome, we always stress the benefits of at least yearly check-ups with the general practitioner.
