My First Visit

Your initial appointment with Drs. Cummings, Balasanian, Caputo or Nicholls will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options.

Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However patients with a complex medical history or treatment plan will require a thorough evaluation with a second appointment to provide the treatment on another day.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any insurance claims
