We consider your first appointment with our practice an important educational visit for both you and the practice. We use this time to truly listen to your concerns and expectations. We take the necessary time to provide you with accurate information about your condition and its treatment. Dr. Cherry will personally discuss the surgical and anesthetic options involved in your upcoming procedure. Many of our patients have found that this personal touch and attention to detail gives them a sensation of comfort for the work needed to accomplish their required treatment. Most procedures can be completed during the initial visit. For more extensive procedures, additional visits may be required.

Important: A parent or guardian is required during the initial consultation if the patient is under the age of 18.
