Patient Information

We are excited for you to choose Anacortes Dermatology for your medical care. Generally we have a short wait for appointments, and patients can usually be seen the same week, or even the same day for urgent issues.  We will make every effort to accommodate your busy schedule. In order to make your appointment as enjoyable as possible, please read the following two sections:

What to Expect

At Anacortes Dermatology we exhibit professionalism within a casual atmosphere.  Please arrive around 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment to get registered in our computer system. This time will be less time if your paperwork has already been filled out prior to arrival. When you arrive, we will enter your information in our electronic medical record system (EMR). If requested, you can be given online access to your medical record, including any diagnosis and treatments prescribed. Insurance billing will be performed by an outside billing agency who specializes in the dermatology.  Generally new patient appointments last around 30-60 minutes, but can be longer or shorter if there are issues which need to be addressed.  If we run out of time, we can see you back as often as you wish to be sure all problems are addressed. 

Prior to your visit please:

  • Call your insurance company - Please call your insurance company to determine your 'out-of-network' benefits if any. By understanding these benefits it will avoid any misunderstanding or confusion about your bill, especially when it comes to any applicable deductible, copay, or percentage paid by the insurance company .
  • Print, and fill out, registration materials - Please click on the 'Patient Resources' tab and print out the registration materials.
  • Bring your completed forms - The Registration Form, Privacy Practices Acknowledgment Form, and Billing Forms should be completed and brought to your appointment.
  • Call us with questions - Call our office if you have any questions or concerns with the registration materials.
