Please inform us at least 72 hours prior to your appointment if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. This allows us to offer this appointment slot to other patients. Please note that we reserve two hours of time with our staff for your appointment, so late cancellations significantly affect us. Patients who cancel or reschedule less than 72 hours prior to their appointment will be charged a $200 cancellation fee. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
For this reason, please make sure your scheduled exam is on your calendar.
Please refrain from eating for eight (8) hours prior to your visit.
Because your visit includes an EKG, you should wear appropriate clothing.
3) Eye Preparation
Your appointment will include photos of the back of your eye(s). Although we will not dilate your eyes, if you are wearing contact lenses, these will need to be removed for this test. In preparation for this, please bring any supplies you may need to remove your contacts, or wear glasses.
4) Medical History
Some of the questions regarding family history are critical for formulating an accurate “risk score” and providing a comprehensive medical evaluation, and may require inquiry or research. A detailed family medical history will help our medical providers interpret the history of disease in your family and identify patterns that may be relevant to your own health. This form is needed to assess your risk of certain diseases, determine which diagnostic tests to order as well as type and frequency of screening tests, identify a condition that might not otherwise be considered, and assess your risk of passing a condition on to your children.
Please fill it out to the best of your ability, and if you have questions about portions or were not sure of the best answer, we will review this form with you during your visit.
List allergies and type of reaction. Include medications, food, and seasonal/environmental allergies (animals, latex, smoke, etc.)
