Important Information

If you are a new patient, please have all the necessary forms below completed before your upcoming appointment. You will need to bring a picture ID and your insurance card(s) with you to your appointment and all co-payments or co-insurance fees are due at the time of service.

Please note, any prior unpaid balances will be due before being seen by the doctor.

Please verify with your insurance company that we are in your network before your appointment. Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance provider; therefore, we do not guarantee that we are participating in your network.

We ask that you arrive twenty (20) minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to review and make sure that we have all of your paperwork completed.

Please do not bring any children, other than the patient, to the scheduled appointment so that we may give that person our full attention.

Each patient’s time is valuable and we strive to keep our schedule running on time. Due to this, we will reschedule your appointment if you are over fifteen (15) minutes late.

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible by calling (912) 267-1569.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
