Become a New Patient
Thank you for considering Downtown Family Health Care. To become a new patient:
Complete the new patient paperwork and mail to the office
Once the paperwork is received, an office staff member will call to schedule your appointment
When you come to our office for the first time as a new patient, we’ll ask you to complete some initial forms, including an Authorization and Consent for Treatment form, if you were not able to complete them in advance of your appointment.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your first appointment to make sure there are no delays in care during your first visit experience. We will need to ensure that your registration is complete before having you meet with your new provider.
Remember to bring:
- Your insurance card
- Valid photo ID
- List of current medications
- Office co-pay
To respect the time of all of our patients, our staff strives to stay on schedule so that other patients do not have to wait.
For patients who are delayed and arrive late for appointment, every effort will be made to see them the same day. However, wait times may apply, or appointments may need to be rescheduled.
