New Patient Scheduling: When openings are available for new patients, we schedule new patients for the month beginning on the first weekday of the month (i.e. October 1 for October appointments). This allows our existing patients to schedule their follow ups first so that we do not overbook and so that quality time with the doctor is maintained for all patients. As of 3/15/2017, we have no openings for new patients. Our wait list is full and capped. We cannot estimate when we will have openings.
Insurances: We are not currently accepting insurance patients. If you have Medicaid, we cannot schedule you as a self-pay patient.
