New Patient / First Time Visit

If you are coming for your first visit, our scheduling staff will mail informational forms to you for completion prior to your appointment.  You may also download these forms from our website by clicking here.

We ask that you bring these completed forms with you to your appointment.  In addition, please bring the following items with you:

  • All the medications you are currently taking. 
    *When you visit the office- for either a physician visit or any procedure - please bring all the medicines and supplements that you are taking with you - including any vitamins and supplements that you may have purchased over-the-counter.  Many national studies have shown that a major source of health-related issues and even hospitalizations can be traced back to medications not being used as they are prescribed by their physician or from negative interactions resulting from other prescriptions or supplements purchased over-the-counter.
  • Your insurance card and any insurance referrals from your referring physician you may need.  (Click here for Insurance and Billing Information)

Your First Office Visit:

Your initial appointment with one of our cardiac specialists will include a discussion of your medical history, a physical examination, and if indicated, any necessary diagnostic testing.  We will evaluate whether your symptoms are cardiac related and whether medical therapy and/or  interventional procedures are necessary.  If additional non-cardiac evaluation is needed, we will be happy to recommend appropriate specialists and coordinate your care with them. Because we believe that prevention is the best medicine, and education is the best tool, we will work closely with you and your primary physician to incorporate your cardiovascular needs with your general medical care.

A new patient visit usually requires approximately 45 minutes to one hour.  We know your time is valuable and we try to stay on schedule. 

Please try to come about 15 minutes early for your first appointment to complete any additional paperwork that we may need and to allow time for the receptionist to get your complete record together prior to your examination.
