It can take awhile to completely fill out the form; but we have found that at detailed patient history is one of the most effective ways of discovering the root cause of troublesome symptoms.

If you don’t fill out your forms prior to your appointment, we require
that you arrive 30 minutes EARLY to fill them out.
