About Your Visit


For the convenience of our patients, we use Phreesia for patient registration.

What is Phreesia?

office visitPhreesia provides a self-service check-in method, which eliminates the need to fill out all those paper registration forms, and expedites wait time. Upon arrival, patients are given a wireless touchscreen PhreesiaPad to update demographics, medical history, sign consent forms, and make payments electronically— all from the privacy of their seat in our waiting room.

Since the initial check-in requires more time to complete, we ask new patients to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time.

What is Online Check-in?

As a patient, we want your appointment to be as quick and comfortable as possible. In partnership with Phreesia, we are excited to offer you the ability to complete check-in intake process privately and conveniently prior to your appointment.  


A Pre-Visit email will be sent to you, providing you with a private way to give your doctor all the information he or she needs for your upcoming visit, and saving you time in the waiting room. For your convenience, we will also send a text message to your mobile device that will allow you to complete your Pre-Registration.
