Your First medicine Visit at YAO

So you may your appointment!  Right on! If you are new to our Medicine Department at YAO, you will either receive an email with a link to the Initial Patient Paperwork or you can download it below.   Read the appropriate section for the type of visit for which you are coming.


Please click through below on the Initial Patient Paperwork button and print out the intake form and complete before you arrive. It will likely take you about 20 minutes to complete and it is best to do prior to your visit so that it doesn't take away the time you might spend with your doctor one on one. You are welcome to email your paperwork upon completion by scanning it and sending it to: [email protected] or simply bring it in with you to your first visit.

Additionally, if you have had any recent lab work done, please feel free to make copies of these results and bring them with you for your YAO doctor to review or alternatively, scan and email as suggested above. If you haven't had any recent lab work done, please don't worry yourself.  If necessary, we can order labs directly from YAO or work with you to utilize the most cost effective method should your Health Insurance cover them.

We recommend that you set aside at least 3 full hours for your initial visit.  You will be here likely for 2 hours.  We see many complex cases here at YAO and though we do our darndest to create a wonderful flow of great patient care, sometimes we can get some tricky cases in our door and we may be a bit behind. Setting aside plenty of time on your part can alleviate any unnecessary stress when you are coming for treatment.  We have put the following blog article together to explain a little bit more about what we term the "YAO TIME WARP".  We are wishful that you will find it to be pleasant reading. 


For Flash Clinic visits, if you have never been to YAO, you will need to complete the Initial Flash Clinic Paperwork below. Click through, print that out and complete before you arrive in order to make the most of your time with your Flash physician. If you are coming to the Flash clinic to treat pain, you may complete the pain intake when you arrive the day of your appointment in order to properly assess what is happening that very day.  Flash Clinic visits last 45 minutes and are designed for us to provide the patient with private, affordable and speedy acupuncture. So planning for 45 minutes should be sufficient!

Feel free to email us your Initial Flash Clinic Paperwork at : [email protected] OR simply bring it with you the day of your appointment.
