We are now utilizing "same day scheduling." This means you will call the day you need an appointment and make arrangements for that day. No more trying to remember to call ahead and set up an appointment. If you call before 9 AM you are almost guaranteed to be seen on that day. You may also walk-in without calling to make an appointment. Walk-ins must check in by 8 AM to guarantee availability.
