Your first visit to ENT Associates establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. 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(s), practice hours, payment policies and more. There's background information about our first visit procedures. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the new patient forms in advance of your appointment.
To schedule an appointment please call us at 760-724-8749.
Prior to your appointment we ask that you fill out the New Patient Forms. They can be completed online or by printing the PDF. If you choose to print and fill out the PDF version, please bring the completed forms on the day of your exam or fax them ahead of time to 760-724-2604. These forms will help us better understand your head and/or neck concern(s), overall health, and assess your disorder(s).
