The New Patient Process

Schedule An Apppointment

Please call 864.233.5722, option 4, to schedule an appointment at any of our locations. All telephone calls are answered by trained staff members who can assist you with any questions you may have. You do not need a referral from another physician to schedule an appointment with us, unless this is a requirement of your insurance.

Complete New Patient Paperwork

We ask that you complete our new patient paperwork before your first visit. This information is vital to your examination, and we ask that you complete it accurately. If you need assistance, please arrive early and one of our staff members can assist you.

Patients Being Referred

Referring offices can complete the RCC Patient Referral Form to send electronically or via fax to our office. Patients new to our office should also complete the New Patient Packet in addition to this form. For more information, physicians should see the For Referring Physicians information below.

What to Expect

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your first appointment.
  • Since your visit may include various tests and procedures, we ask that you allow at least two hours.
  • We recommend having someone available to drive you home, as your eyes may be sensitive after your appointment.

Please Bring the Following to Your Appointment:

A list of all medications you are currently taking

Name of eye drop brands you are currently using

Your medical insurance card(s)

A photo ID card

A referral from your primary physician, if required by your insurance

Gentle Eye Evaluation

An Ophthalmic Technician will review your medical history and obtain additional information for the doctor. They will also check your vision and dilate your eyes using eye drops. This will allow for a better view when the doctor examines your eyes.

Once your eyes are fully dilated, you will be examined by the doctor. The examination will include a thorough exam of your eyes and depending on the nature of the problem, additional tests may be required and treatment may be initiated.

Financial Policy

Payment is due at the time of service and we accept most insurance plans. As a specialist, we file medical insurance only. We do not file vision insurance. Payment can be made by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Feel free to call our office with any questions. (Select option 7.)

Exam notes

We ask that the exam notes be faxed to the office in which the appointment is scheduled, so our doctor may review the patient’s medical chart at their visit. Please refer to our locations page for the individual fax numbers.

The patient will need to bring completed new patient forms to their appointment.
