First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Dr. Ford and his team will help to make you feel at ease. We will make sure all your questions are answered as well as assist you in understanding the proper course of treatment and how it will help you once a diagnosis is made.

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