What To Expect

Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It will also help alleviate any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling prior to your first appointment. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this website. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctor and staff. We look forward to your first visit! Please connect to the Patient Portal to set up your personal connection with your chart.

If you need a colonoscopy or capsule endoscopy, you'll be required to visit with the nurse who will then schedule your procedure.

To provide the best care possible, we require new patients and established patients who haven't been seen in the last 5 years fill out the Patient Paperwork.  It is available on our Patient Portal and as a printable PDF.  Established patients who have been seen in the last 5 years may update their information at their appointment.
