General Questions

Do you accept my insurance?

We accept all insurance and Medicaid.

When I arrive, where do I park?

You may park in the parking lot or along the street.

I am a new patient. How should I prepare for my first appointment?

The best way to come prepared for your first appointment is to complete our new patient forms in advance and bring them with you. If you email or call us, we will happily send you new patient forms to fill out. We also recommend arriving 15-20 minutes early for your first visit so all your paperwork and insurance information can be processed before your scheduled appointment time. If you are coming in for a pelvic exam and/or pap test, please do not use any vaginal products or have sex for 24 hours prior to your visit.

At what age should I have my first gyn exam?

Unless there is a medical problem, you should have your first pelvic exam around the age of 21 years or sooner if you begin sexual activity.

When should I get my first mammogram?

Women age 40 and older should have mammograms every one or two years. However, the likelihood of developing breast cancer is higher if a close blood relative has been diagnosed with the disease, especially if they were diagnosed before the age of 50. Likewise, women who began having their periods before the age of 12 or who went through menopause after the age of 55 are at higher risk, as are women who had their first child after age 30 or who never had a child. If you believe you may be at a higher risk, ask your physician when you should start being examined.

When should I schedule my first prenatal appointment?

If you’ve tested positive with a home pregnancy test, congratulations! Give us a call. We will schedule an appointment for you approximately eight weeks from your last menstrual period. In the mean time, avoid drugs, alcohol and smoking (including second-hand smoke) as much as possible.

What if I am late for my appointment?

We understand that you may run late to your appointment. We will try to accommodate you, however; you may be asked to reschedule your appointment to ensure that other patients are given the appropriate time with their physician.

What if I miss my appointment?

Call the office as soon as possible to reschedule.
