In my profession, I can actually help people feel better about themselves and how the world sees them. It’s the most wonderful satisfaction to be able to do so.
For your first visit, I would appreciate if you could arrive a little early for your appointment. This allows me to have a chance to get to know you, and have you fill out our patient cards and forms. Although I understand that sometimes things happen, I would ask you try to be on time. I work very hard to always be on schedule for my patients, and your time with me is important. I would not want you to lose out on your appointment time.
During your first visit I will perform an initial consultation, and address any concerns you may have with your skin. In terms of how the appointment progresses, it really changes from patient to patient. Whatever your goal is as a patient, we will work toward it together.
I offer my clients complete confidentiality. What you say during your appointment, as well as your records will both be protected under this statement. I understand that often times the subject of skin can be a sensitive one, and I will always honor your privacy. If you have any other concerns, I have detailed policies available at my office for you to have a look at.
Treatment of Children and Adolescents
While I am more than happy to perform services and consultations on children and adolescents, those under the age of 18 should come with a parent. Bringing a parent will ensure proper home care, as well as an understanding of any skin care diagnosis.
