In-person Visits

** PLEASE NOTE ** In-office patients are required to wear a mask. Caregivers must stay in the vehicle for the duration of your visit. If you are experiencing possible COVID-19 symptoms including a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, contact us immediately and we will determine next steps.

Can I see my doctor in-person?

Most likely, yes! Your provider will determine if an in-person office visit is necessary. Protecting our patients, physicians, and staff from COVID-19 is our top priority. Southwest Gastroenterology asks our patients to consider scheduling a telehealth visit before attempting to schedule an in-person visit.

What can I expect on my first visit?

New Patients are encouraged to complete the new patient registration form and online check-in before your initial appointment.

Follow-up Patients are encouraged to complete online check-in via the patient portal before your appointment. This will help expedite the intake process. 

It is also important that you have the following items with you:

  • Medications you are currently taking.

  • Insurance card/Driver's license.

  • Copies of past medical records.

  • Recent blood work and x-rays ( Such as upper GI series, barium enema, ultrasound, or CT scans of the abdomen or pelvis).

Note: If medical records are to be sent by your referring doctor(s), please call us to verify that we have received them prior to your visit. Lack of these items may result in delays.
