Information Regarding your First Appointment + Directions
What to Bring:
Please bring in a list of vitamins and herbs you are taking. You do not need to bring in your medications if you recorded these on your intake form. If possible, please also bring in any laboratory test results you’ve had performed within the last year. To facilitate your request for records, please download the release-of-records form here which you can fill-out and send to your previous doctor. When filling out the form, please indicate LAB TESTS ONLY where appropriate. You can also ask your healthcare providers to FAX over any recent lab work to 844-478-9726.
Intake forms and Patient Portal:
When we set up your appointment, we created a PHR (Patient Health Record) account for you. At that time, you were sent an email invitation to set up your secure patient portal. Please download the intake form here, which you will fill out and bring to your first appointment! If you need any help with this process, please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 607-351-7808.
Telemedicine or Video Appointment:
If your appointment is a video appointment, you will receive an email invitation from DOXY.ME, an online secure telemedicine platform. You will click on the link and be brought into the patient virtual waiting room. I will meet you in the waiting room and bring you onto the video call. Please be sure your video and audio are on. If you cannot hear me or see me, I will message you on the DOXY platform or via your phone.
If your appointment is a phone appointment I will call you at the noted time. If you do not receive a call, I may be finishing up with another client and will call as soon as I am finished. If you have not received a call within 15 minutes of the noted appointment time, please call me at 607-351-7808.

After turning off highway 79 and onto Rachel Carson Way, stay on the main road for half a mile.
We are in the third group houses at the very end of the road on the left, beyond the new neighborhood you see on the right (greyish houses). Turn before the last set of carports and find a parking space. You will see a sign for Song (the name of the second neighborhood). Enter through one of the main entrances and find #206. There is a picture of Ecovillage below you can view. Our house is circled.
If you still need help, please call 607-351-7808 and if you’ve gone through a fence and see our back porch, please go back out and around to the front. Thank you.
