New Patients:

Before Your Appointment
We look forward to serving you as you begin your health care with us. Your Health Team would like to save you some time on your initial visit to our center. Please download, print and fill out your completed New Patient Information forms and bring the information requested with you to your appointment.

Your Initial Visit
To expedite your visit, download the New Patient Packet, Right click, and Save Link/File As... to your computer. Please print and fill out all forms and bring with you.

Please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat to view and complete the patient forms. Please print and fill out all forms and bring with you for your visit.

During your initial visit you will be seen by our staff who will ask you about your medical history and your symptoms. A focused neurological examination will then be made by your doctor.

While many patients want to discuss in great detail the exact event which may have caused their injury, the most important information your health care team needs involves your symptoms (such as where you have pain, weakness, numbness, etc.) and what limitations these symptoms place on your every day activities. Please take the time to write down this information.

After reviewing your medical history and diagnostic tests, you will be presented with a number of treatment options. We will inform you of the risks and benefits of each option and will assist you in making the final decision concerning which option is best for you.

Please bring the following to your appointment:

  • Completed new patient information forms
  • Insurance Card
  • Drivers License
  • Any and all films pertaining to your injury (example MRI, CT scan X-Ray etc.)
  • Medical records/reports pertaining to your injury
  • Referrals if required by your insurance plan
  • Minor patients (under 18 yrs of age) must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at every visit.
