What To Expect At Your Visit

Initial Visits are generally 60-90 minutes to obtain a thorough history and get to know one another. It is a good time to bring in past records or referrals. This is a time to begin to determine what is needed and to discuss options for treatment.


Follow up appointments are individualized. These visits will be scheduled for 25-55 minutes to meet your needs and depending on the treatment plan. Medication follow up appointments generally last 25 minutes.
