On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome you to our clinic. We are pleased to have the opportunity to assist you with your healthcare needs. We welcome the privilege to provide you with the highest level of patient care and make your experience with us a positive one.

Pre-Appointment Preparations

Please use this link to download our New Patient Registration Forms.



You may download and print these forms prior to your first visit. We know your time is valuable. The forms contain all information necessary for our staff to assist you and save you time on your appointment day. Any outside medical documentation from other specialists may be brought the day of the appointment, or faxed directly to our office ahead of time. (Fax: 231-947-0977) Some questions on the forms may be hard to answer, but please try your best to answer them all.

Helpful Tips

  • When scheduling your appointment, it’s extremely helpful if you let our stuff know anything and everything you’ll be coming in to see us for ahead of time. Some patients have several issues, and we want to make sure we set aside enough time to address all your concerns. Appointment duration is catered to you, the patient, not a premade schedule on a computer! 
  • Wear comfortable clothes if possible. We understand some of our patients’ appointments are made during their work day, so we completely understand if you need to arrive in work attire. 
  • Bring a few pairs of shoes! Part of understanding your issue might involve looking at what kinds of shoes you wear on a daily basis. Our shoes tell us a story about how we walk. Assessing for extra wear and tear in certain areas of your shoes helps us understand how you walk, why you might be in pain, and what we need to do to get you feeling better quickly!
  • Bring a photo ID
  • Bring your insurance card
