Become a Patient

Appointments

We know your time is important, so we run our office on an appointment basis. Except in the case of an emergency, please call in advance to schedule. In some cases, we can accommodate you the same day. If you need to cancel an appointment, please call our office 24 hours in advance. It is our policy to charge a missed appointment fee for appointments and PFT test appointments that are not kept.

We also ask that patients bring with them ALL medications they are currently taking in addition to a physical copy/CD of all X-rays and CT scans, to EVERY visit. Though we understand this can sometimes be an inconvenience, it is crucial the physician be able to see not only the written report of X-rays and scans, but also the actual pictures. Dr. D’Alessio will often use these pictures to help explain disease processes to patients.

Become a New Patient

We are currently accepting new patients into our practice. Thank you for considering us. To become a new patient:

  1. Make an Appointment
  2. Sign up for our patient portal
  3. Download your patient forms online through the patient portal

When you come to our office for the first time as a new patient, we'll ask you to complete some initial forms, including an Authorization and Consent for Treatment form, if you were not able to download them from the patient portal in advance of your appointment.

To make sure there are no delays in care during your first visit experience, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to ensure your registration is complete before meeting with your new provider.

Remember to bring:

  • Your insurance card
  • Valid photo ID
  • List of current medications
  • Office co-pay

In an effort to respect the time of all of patients, our staff strives to stay on schedule so that other patients do not have to wait.

For patients who are delayed and arrive late for appointment, every effort will be made to see them the same day. However, wait times may apply, or appointments may need to be rescheduled.
