Planning your first visit to the Center For Digestive Health & Nutrition? On this page, you'll find the information

you need to get started, such as a map and directions to our office. To save you time, you will receive

a text and/or e-mail to complete your health history forms about a week prior to your appointment. 


What To Expect

Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all the information needed

to provide the best possible care for you. It will also help alleviate any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling prior to your first appointment. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this website. Also, take some time to review our Providers page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. If you are a new patient, our FAQ page is a bit long but will answer just about any questions you may have. We look forward to your first visit.

What To Bring

  1. Driver's License or other Photo ID. 

  2. All Insurance cards

  3. Our office policy is to collect all co-payments and deductibles on the day of the appointment. Be prepared to pay for this. We accept cash, check, or credit card. 

  4. Know what prescription and non-prescription medicines you take and why you take them. You may wish to put them all in a bag and bring them with you. Medication errors are the most common healthcare mistakes.
