Patient Appointments

Our current office has no lobby so we cannot accomodate walk-ins or guests. We see patients by appointment ONLY. We also now make house calls in the City of Cottonwood only. Visit the Services page for our current offerings.

For in-Person appointments we must have a "New Patient" session first. This does not include a treatment and takes about 1.5 hours. You can fill out the necessary forms by using our Forms page.
