Patient FAQ

Our retina team is here for you, especially for any questions you may have. Our FAQ guide addresses common questions about treatment, insurance, and more.

It is possible to receive a same-day appointment at our practice, but we cannot guarantee one. Our team will do our best to schedule an appointment should you have a preference for a specific location or doctor. If there is an emergency, please call our office promptly.

During a new patient appointment, we will begin by asking you details about your general health and vision. We will screen your vision and measure the level of pressure in your eyes. Additional testing may be needed depending on any condition(s) present. Post-appointment, we recommend that you arrange for assistance with transportation home.

We ask that patients always come prepared with a photo ID and their insurance card. It is also very helpful to bring a list of any medication you are taking, any allergies you have, a list of supplements if applicable, as well as any questions/concerns at this time. This will save time during your appointment.

We accept most insurance plans, but we do ask that you please call our office directly to confirm that your insurance is accepted prior to your appointment. Our insurance coordinators can assist with verifying coverage at this time.

Our practice accepts cash, checks, and major debit/credit cards.
