New Patients

Getting Started
We are excited to welcome new patients seeking rheumatologic care. To schedule an appointment, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Check your insurance.

  • We accept most major insurances at our practice but it will be your responsibility to ensure that we are in-network with your health plan. A list of insurance plans that we accept are listed here.

  • If your insurance plan requires a referral, please have your referring physician send us the necessary referral information.

Step 2: Have prior progress notes, labs, and imaging sent to us.

  • While patients are welcome to come to our practice without an official referral from some other doctor, we do require notes and labs detailing your most recent visits with a primary physician or rheumatologist. We are NOT a primary care office, so we believe it is important to have a doctor who can manage other conditions that do not fall under rheumatology.

  • If you would like us to request records for you, please complete and FAX or MAIL us this release form. 

Step 3: Schedule your appointment.

  • Once we receive and review your medical records, we will call you to schedule an appointment.  We don't like long waits either so we will do our best to get you in quickly!
