Become a Patient

Getting Started

An appointment for a consultation must be made so our doctors can examine you and determine the nature of your problem and their suggested resolution. To make an appointment, please call our appointment line at 301.251.4128, option 2 for Advanced Surgery, then option 1 for appointments.

We see patients Monday through Friday at a variety of convenient times in our Rockville location and every other Friday morning at our Germantown location. Please have your insurance card handy when calling for an appointment. A list of participating insurance companies is listed under the Insurance & Fees tab.

To expedite your initial appointment with us, we request you fill out our online Patient Forms and bring them with you to your appointment. The other forms are provided for your information.

You may be asked to update these forms once a year so we can be compliant. Please click the link below to fill out our online Patient Registration Form, Health History Form and our Disclaimer. Then print these out and bring them, along with your insurance card and a picture ID at the time of your appointment.

Become a New Patient

We are currently accepting new patients into our practice. Thank you for considering us. To become a new patient:

  1. Make an Appointment
  2. Sign up for our patient portal
  3. Download your patient forms online through the patient portal

When you come to our office for the first time as a new patient, we'll ask you to complete some initial forms, including an Authorization and Consent for Treatment form, if you were not able to download them from the patient portal in advance of your appointment.

To make sure there are no delays in care during your first visit experience, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to ensure your registration is complete before meeting with your new provider.

Remember to bring:

  • Your insurance card
  • Valid photo ID
  • List of current medications
  • Office co-pay

In an effort to respect the time of all of patients, our staff strives to stay on schedule so that other patients do not have to wait.

For patients who are delayed and arrive late for appointment, every effort will be made to see them the same day. However, wait times may apply, or appointments may need to be rescheduled.
