New Patients Visit

How do I make an appointment?

For new patients making an initial consultation, you can either ask your doctor's office to send a referral request to us or you can call to schedule your own appointment. Certain insurance plans require you to obtain a referral from your primary care doctor. If you are calling to make an initial evaluation appointment yourself, we may need to obtain sufficient records from your doctor(s) before we can schedule an expedited appointment; this is to help facilitate appropriate prioritization of appointments based on individual needs.


What to bring for my first visit?

Medication bottles or medication list. Insurance information. Any available medical records. Family members with questions or someone to assist in translation, if necessary.


What tests will the doctor order?

An urine sample will be requested on your initial visit. After your first visit, your doctor will determine the need for additional blood tests, ultrasound or other x-ray's testing depending on your medical conditions.


Will parking be available?

At the Long Beach Kilroy office park location, parking is widely available and free of charge. At the Los Alamitos office, parking is available in the parking lot at the back of the building and free of charge. At the central Long Beach (Saint Mary Medical Center) location, parking is available in the parking structure on Atlantic avenue and free with validation.


Is the office wheelchair accessible?

Yes, all of our offices are wheelchair accessible.
