  •          Staff will take you to a private room to wait for the clinician.
  •          The clinician will complete your registration information and will review your medical history.  Tests will be determined by medical history.
  •          All information is HIPPA protected.
  •          The clinician will discuss your care and will offer an examination.  During the examination, the clinician will explain everything that is being done and why.
  •          Based on your discussion with the clinician and your examination, your clinician may decide to treat you at your visit before your results come back. Some patients may need to be treated after test results are back.
  •          The clinic will contact all clients with their results.  If a result is positive, a follow-up appointment will be scheduled if the client hasn’t already received correct treatment.

 

How long does it take?

Expect your visit to take at least 30-45 minutes.  Longer wait times are possible, but uncommon.  Please understand we will spend as much time with you as needed.
