What to Expect at Your First Appointment

We're excited to have you as our patient, and we know your first appointment can be unnerving. We're here to put you at ease. Your comfort, safety and trust in us is always our top priority.

We pledge to always do our best to answer your questions.  As always, let us know if there's anything we can do better. We appreciate your feedback and are constantly improving our process.

We hope your experience with us is a great one.


Expect to come in and be here for about 30-45 minutes

There are no special requirements before your procedure, wear whatever you want but comfortable loose clothing is best.  Feel free to eat on your normal schedule.

The procedure itself will only take 5 minutes for the internal treatment and 5-10 minutes for the external treatment if required.

There is no anesthesia unless external treatment is performed. You will be fully capable of driving yourself to and from our office.

Some women experience mild discomfort, although the vast majority feel nothing.

You cannot have this procedure while menstruating.
