What To Expect At Your Visit

First Appointment: Meet and Greet

Step One: Bring the following with you:

  1. ID
  2. Medical Insurance Cards
  3. Medication List
  4. Make time for 30 minutes, including driving time
  5. List of questions regarding the concierge service

Step Two: Meet the doctor!

  1. During the meet and greet, the patient and the doctor can introduce themselves to each other and better understand how the concierge service can benefit the patient over the traditional primary practice.

Step Three: Sign Up!

  1. Once the meet and greet ends, the patient decides if concierge medicine is for them. If so, they can sign up the same day, get set up for their New Patient Visit, and fill out their new patient paperwork!
  2. If they want to sleep on it, they can call us anytime to schedule their new patient visit and sign up when they come in.

Second Appointment: New Patient Visit

  1. During this visit, the patient and the doctor dive more in-depth into the patient’s health.

We recommend bringing the following:

  1. Any medical records the patient has with them
  2. A list of medical questions they would like to consult the doctor about
  3. Make time for 1 hour, including driving time
  4. Medication List (if it changed between meet and greet to the new patient)

Third Appointment: Annual Physical: Based on the doctor’s recommendations, the next step is typically an annual physical.
