Your Office Visit
Please go directly to the front desk. We will confirm your information to be sure all requirements are met for your insurance. With the many different medical and vision plans available in our area, it is often necessary for the authorizations to be obtained before a patient can be seen. Please fill out a Patient Registration Form as well as a Health History Form, and bring them with you.  For your convenience, we have included a link to our medical release form here, and our Privacy Practices

Attention All Patients, please have your most recent insurance cards ready for the receptionist. We will be asking for these at every visit to verify your insurance information. Please read the Notice of this Requirement as handed down to us from the insurance companies.

Please allow 90 minutes for all comprehensive and routine eye exams. Our ophthalmic technician will take a history and perform preliminary testing. Drops to dilate the pupil will be used, which can take up to 20 minutes to effectively allow a view of the retina. Your vision will be blurred, especially when viewing close-up. If you are concerned about driving under these circumstances, please have someone drive you. Dilated eyes will be sensitive to light. Sunglasses will make your eyes more comfortable.

Office hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We try to schedule work-ins at the end of the day, so that regularly scheduled patients are not kept waiting more than absolutely necessary. We realize your time is valuable, so our schedules are reviewed daily to reduce waiting time.

Telephone Calls
Please feel free to call the office if you have any questions regarding your condition, medication, or treatment. Our assistants are specially trained to answer your questions, arrange prescription refills, etc. If it is necessary, the doctor will return your call at the end of office hours. If this is not satisfactory, please let our staff know.
