New Patients

Welcome to our practice! 

Below is most of the information you will need before your first appointment. If there's anything else we can help you with please feel free to call us!

Checklist for your first appointment:

  • New Patient Registration - please click here to go to our secure site and complete our patient registration. If you don't have time to do it now, please come a few minutes before your appointment to complete your paperwork at our office. 

  • Patient Disclosures - you are welcome to sign these when you arrive at our offices. But, if you would prefer, you can print and sign the following forms and bring them with you.
    - Financial/HIPPA Form (2pgs)
    - Share Medical Information (optional - only necessary if you want to allow a spouse or other family member to speak to us about your medical/financial information)

  • Insurance card - if you are using any type of insurance, please remember to bring your card(s). Some vision insurance companies may not provide a card, if they don't your regular medical insurance card is fine. We will also need a photo ID of the insured or a parent/guardian.

  • Current glasses and/or contact lens boxes if you are currently wearing contact lenses.

  • List of current medications - if you would like to provide them through the online registration, that is fine or if you have a list, we would be happy to copy that for you at our office.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
