Once you arrive at CT Derm you will be greeted by one of our receptionists.* If you didn't complete your forms online we will request that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out your registration forms. Otherwise, the only additional information that the receptionist will request will be your insurance cards and photo ID.
After the initial check in process you can wait in our relaxing reception area for your appointment. The typical wait prior to being seen is about 10 minutes. In the unlikely event that the provider whom you are seeing is running behind schedule, you will be notified by the receptionist upon your arrival.
When it is time for your appointment, you will be escorted to your exam room by a member of our nursing staff. If you and a family member both have appointments, we will give each of you your own exam room. The provider will visit with you, provide with you a diagnosis and explain your condition to you. They will also spend time educating you on various aspects of your condition and what you can do to treat or cure it.
Upon completion of your visit the nurse will provide you with thorough written instructions so that you can implement the changes that the provider has recommended. If another appointment or procedure is needed you will have the opportunity to schedule that before you leave.
We do request that you refrain from wearing perfume or cologne when visiting CT Derm. We have a few nurses who are allergic to various brands. If you happen to forget please notify the receptionist when you check in for your appointment. The receptionist will make sure that the nurse that is assigned to you is not one who is allergic.
