New Patient Info

Your Office Visit
Your appointment includes time for examination and discussion. During your visit, you will meet the dedicated professionals of our highly trained medical staff. They are well-known for the compassionate care they extend to patients.

It is essential that you bring any existing copies of your X-ray, MRI, and CT films with you to your appointment for a complete assessment of your condition.  We also have on-site digital X-ray facilities available to image your foot and ankle at our office.

Our Office Hours
For after-hour emergencies, call our office at (207) 947-2220, and the answering service will assist you in alerting the physician on-call.

To schedule an appointment, please call during the office hours.

We try in every instance to see each patient at his or her scheduled appointment time. Our physicians have an excellent record of running on time, and we are proud of this fact. However, occasionally a wait is unavoidable due to the nature of our specialty. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We ask that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance when you need to cancel or change your appointment. This gives us the opportunity to offer your time to someone else. We sometimes encounter emergencies which force us to cancel our office schedule on short notice. We will reschedule your appointment at the earliest possible time.

Having Surgery
Most patients are understandably anxious when they are scheduled for surgery. Our skilled staff will provide you with specific pre-operative testing and admission instructions. Pre-operative testing is performed to determine if a patient is able to safely have surgery. Admission instructions will provide details regarding date and time of surgery and what preparations can be made to make your surgery as safe and comfortable as possible.

Fees and Insurance Claims
Payment is requested at the end of each office visit. We accept personal checks, major credit cards, cash, and most insurance plans. It is extremely important that you bring your insurance cards to your appointment so that we may obtain the necessary and correct information to file all primary and secondary claims for you. However, it is difficult to know all the specifics about each insurance plan. It is your responsibility to obtain referrals and determine if we are a provider of your plan. We also accept Medicare and will bill your secondary insurance when needed. However, complete payment is ultimately your responsibility.
