When you book your first appointment with Annapolis Family Acupuncture, you should receive an email welcoming you to our practice with a link to complete your new patient intake and to sign the following forms listed below. It is extremely helpful if you fill out the forms online prior to your appointment; please allow at least fifteen minutes to complete this extensive intake. If you prefer for some reason to print them from here, you may do so and either email them or bring them with you so they can be scanned into your patient file.
In the event you are unable to complete the intake prior to your appointment, we will have copies in the office, but please arrive at least 15-20 minutes early in order to fill out the paperwork before your scheduled appointment time so that it does not cut into your treatment. Dr. Molly cares very much about the thoroughness and integrity of her care for you, and your appointment time is set to accommodate that.
