What to Expect on Your First Visit

first visitA new patient office visit generally takes about one hour.  Pre-registration with our practice is available here.  New patient paperwork is available here.  Please bring the following with you:

  • Photo ID,
  • Insurance card,
  • List of current medications,
  • Pertinent medical records. 
 

Before seeing the doctor you'll be asked to complete a questionnaire about your home and work environments, routine and symptoms.  This information is just the beginning of our investigation into the cause of your symptoms:

  • If you're experiencing breathing symptoms, a simple lung function test will be performed. 
  • Our doctor will also take a detailed medical history and perform a physical exam. 
  • She'll then discuss her findings and recommend how to proceed. 
  • Often, but not always, a series of tests are recommended to ascertain the presence of allergies and identify their severity. These are usually performed at a separate visit.  Learn more about allergy testing.
