When calling for an appointment, our office does our best to arrange to see you as soon as possible. Because some orthopedic problems are more urgent than others, we may ask for more patient information concerning your condition. If the problem is an emergency, whenever possible you will be scheduled to be seen the same day. We make every effort to schedule office visits in such a manner that delays do not occur, however, occasionally a patient may take more time than expected, which may cause a delay in our schedule. We do ask for your patience when these situations arise.
If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, we request that you call the office in advance to cancel your appointment so that we may schedule the appointment for another patient who may be waiting to be seen. For our patient’s convenience, our office has implemented a personalized appointment reminder system called HouseCalls. This system will provide our patients with the courtesy of a timely reminder for upcoming appointments. Our reminder system will call you at home prior to your scheduled appointment to confirm the day, date, and time of your next appointment. You will be prompted to confirm the appointment by pressing the appropriate number on your touch tone telephone keypad. This system provides a more efficient means of communication, enabling our entire staff to fully concentrate on serving you during your appointment.
Please plan to arrive approximately 10 minutes early for your appointment. You may be more comfortable during your leg office examination if you bring shorts to your visit.
