Your First Visit

Your initial appointment may consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. A complex medical history or treatment plan may require a consultation prior to scheduling surgery.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Your Medical and Dental insurance information
  • A list of current or prior medical conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.
  • A list of the medications you are presently taking (heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
  • Referral forms or X-rays given to you by your dentist or physician. We offer an online portal [add link] which allows your dental office to transfer x-rays electronically. You may also pick up the x-rays and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.

If you have not already filled out the Online Patient Registration and Health History Forms, please arrive early to allow time to complete them.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

If you will be undergoing IV anesthesia, please have nothing to eat or drink six to eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home. We require that the driver remain in the office for the duration of the appointment if the patient is being sedated. Please see our Before Anesthesia Care Guide for additional information.

No Surprise Billing Act

Effective 1/1/2022

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.


You are also protected from balanced billing (sometimes called “surprise billing”) in certain circumstances. When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from balance billing. OMS practices are not included in IFRs definition of health care facility.
