First Visit Information

The providers and staff at The Center for Kidney Care thank you for considering us for your nephrology care, and we look forward to serving your health care needs.  Our Practice strives to provide you with an outstanding experience.

Your Appointment Time:

Your time is important to us.  We strive to be on-time and efficient during your visit.

  • Please arrive early to allow time for check-in.
  • Patients are seen in the order of their scheduled appointment with the provider.
  • Sometimes our patients require more time with the provider than was expected.  Please be patient. Everyone receives the same consideration for their needs.
  • At the end of the visit you will check out with the front desk personnel.  A follow-up appointment will be made if needed. If a follow-up appointment cannot be scheduled then you will be notified by phone when it is time to schedule your follow-up appointment.  Please call the office back as soon as you are able to make an appointment.
  • Please notify the office at least 24 hours in advance if you will not be able to keep an appointment.  We would like the opportunity to make that time available for another patient. There will be a charge of $50 for a canceled or rescheduled appointment with less than 24-hour notice. If you do not show for an appointment there will be an additional $50 charge.
