The first visit to our Boise office consists of an in-depth consultation by Dr. Bobst or a member of our medical team. In many cases, we can provide diagnosis, treatment options, and even treatment on the same day as the initial meeting, barring complex medical history or conflicts stemming from a detailed plan with a prior physician. If this is the case, we will provide treatment options and schedule another appointment for treatment.
Your First Appointment
Patients can help expedite the treatment process by bringing certain information to the first appointment. Please provide the following:
- Insurance card and completed insurance forms
