Information of Interest About Our Practice

Before your first appointment with Dr. Silva-Palacios, please download and complete the Patient Intake form.  Bringing it completed to the appointment will allow you and Dr. S-P to use your time more effectively. Please print and read the Privacy Practices and the Office Policy forms and bring them to the appointment as well. If you are NOT Medicare-eligible, please bring the "No Medicare" version. If you have Medicare, please bring the "Medicare Opt-Out" version, because Dr. S-P is not a Medicare provider. He asks you to wait to sign these forms until you have met and mutually decide if you are a good fit to work together..
