PAPER WORK FOR NEW PATIENTS
Please download and complete the following forms and bring them to your initial appointment. If you have trouble accessing the forms, please inform Dr. Choy and a set of forms can be emailed to you. Completing the forms prior to the appointment will save valuable time and will make the initial appointment much more efficient. If you don't have access to a printer or prefer to complete the forms in person, please plan to arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. This will ensure that you have the full session time for the evaluation.
