What to expect

The first time you visit our office you will be seen by one of our physicians. A complete medical history and physical exam will be performed. The diagnosis will be discussed with you and treatment options will be reviewed. If further testing is required, this will be ordered for you. After your consult, if surgery is indicated our surgical scheduler will meet with you to discuss possible surgical dates and locations.  Our team of physicans are on staff at Community Hospital, St. Margaret Hospital (Dyer campus), St. Catherine Hospital and Community Surgery Center. If additional testing or consult from another specialist is required, you may be asked to return for a follow-up appointment in order to determine the best treatment for you.
