New Patients » Gessler Clinic
We welcome new patients for consultations with our physicians, diagnostic evaluation and medical treatment. You may contact us directly or through a referring physician. Prior to your first appointment, please forward copies of your medical records from other physicians. You may download, print and complete the medical questionnaire (printable PDF file, 108 kb, opens in a new browser window) and bring the completed form with you to your appointment. We ask that you arrive 30 minutes early to allow for parking and timely arrival.
For your first appointment, please bring:
- Your medical records (or make sure that we have received them).
- A list of all current medications including herbal and over-the-counter medicines, and nutritional supplements.
- Your health insurance card(s). You will also be asked to present your insurance card(s) on all subsequent appointments. If co-payments are required by your insurance, they must be made prior to seeing the doctor.
- Photo I.D.
- If patient is a minor child and not accompanied by custodial parent, then a notarized statement for authorization of treatment must be brought in by the person with the child.

We ask your understanding when medical emergencies may occasionally cause us to delay or reschedule your appointment. Please notify us as soon as possible if you must cancel your appointment, or be unavoidably late. If you must cancel your appointment due to last-minute unforeseen circumstances, please let us know immediately.
