Established patients/follow-ups: 0 – 20 minutes*

*Time interval is subject to change based on the complexity of the follow-up.

Pre-ops: 0 – 15 minutes
Therapy: 30 – 60 minutes*

*To minimize your waiting time on your initial visit, please ask our staff to fax your registration forms to you prior to your visit, or please arrive 20-30 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete your forms in the office.
