First appointments can take between 30 minutes - 1 hour. You may not be treated or given a care plan at the first visit; in this case you would be scheduled for a follow up appointment shortly thereafter. This is to allow the doctor time to review your case, lab work, and imaging (if applicable) to fully understand your case and assemble an appropriate care plan designed specifically for you.
You will be asked to show up about 15 mintues early to your visit to complete intake paperwork prior to your appointment time, or complete paperwork at home prior to your visit.
During the first visit, your doctor will do a comprehensive physical exam, take a thorough history, and perform tests specific to your primary complaint. Once the doctor has the information they need from that visit they will formulate a care plan specific to you, recommend lab work or specialty testing if needed, and you will be informed of what your care plan entails either prior to your next visit or at your next appointment.
