Total Visit Time

We value your time. We know you have a busy life so we make sure to optimize every moment of your first visit to provide a WORLD-CLASS experience. We ask patients to plan to be in our office for 1 hour (this includes the time it takes to fill out the paperwork onsite). However, most patients do not need this much time. If you have a time constraint, we will accommodate and work to meet your needs.
