To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, financial policies and more.

First Visit

Your initial appointment with Dr. Goldman will consist of an evaluation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the evaluation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
 
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your evaluation:
  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring the cards with you. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
Important: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at each visit.
A preoperative evaluation is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
 
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
 

X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
