What to Expect

Cancellation Policy

New Patients

New patient appointments can last up to one hour or more, to allow the physician to take a complete medical and rheumatology history, perform a complete physical examination, and perform any indicated studies.

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment, to allow time to complete your registration.

When you call for a new patient appointment, please provide the name of the referring physician for our records. Please bring to your appointment copies of all lab tests and X-ray reports that might be relevant to your visit.

Returning Patients

Return patient appointments average between 10 and 30 minutes or more, depending on the reason for the return visit. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early for your appointment to allow updating your registration information, if necessary.

New Covid-19 Office Policies

To our valued patients,

In order to protect our patients and staff, and as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19 in the community, we have put in place several new office policies:

  • Everyone entering our office MUST WEAR a face mask. We apologize that we are unable to supply masks to patients at this time, due to the national shortage. Click here for a quick and excellent video from the Surgeon General on how to make one.
  • Please DO NOT visit our office if you have fever, OR respiratory symptoms such as cough, OR symptoms of a gastrointestinal illness, OR if, in the past 14 days, you have had close contact with someone who has had Covid, OR if you have recently traveled to an area that has had significant Covid infection. If any of these applies, please call to reschedule your appointment or infusion, or to schedule a televisit.
  • In order to practice social distancing in the office, we have markedly restricted our number of in-office doctor’s appointments. Most visits are being conducted by TELEVISIT through the Healow app, or through the Backline platform that works on any browser. Please see Office News on our website home page for more details, after you close this window, and please call our staff with any questions about televisits.
  • We are FULLY OPEN for INFUSION THERAPY without interruption, and we recommend that you continue your infusion therapy on your regular schedule. For your convenience and safety, we offer CURBSIDE CHECK-IN: when you arrive in our parking garage, call the office, and the staff will let you know when your infusion chair is open and ready for you (usually there is no wait). We practice careful social distancing and frequent sterile cleaning in the infusion suite, and masks must be worn by all patients and staff at all times throughout the office, including in the infusion suite.

More details about our Covid-19 policies can be found under Office News on the home page of the website, after you close this window. We appreciate you, and value the trust you have placed in our practice in seeking medical care with us. We welcome any questions you have about any of our office policies, either by phone call, or by portal message. For more information about Covid-19 from the CDC, visit www.cdc.gov.
