undefinedNew Patient Orientation

Important information for new patients of the Methodist Dallas Golden Cross Academic Clinic

If you will be a new patient at the Golden Cross Academic Clinic we welcome you and would like to explain how new patient appointments work.

Pre-registration or orientation appointment

  • New patients must be scheduled for a pre-registration or orientation appointment which occurs on a separate day, before your actual appointment.
  • This appointment establishes your records with the clinic and fills out all the necessary paperwork so that the day of your doctor's appointment will be as hassle-free as possible.
  • This orientation appointment is required for you to see the doctor.
  • If you do not attend, your doctor's appointment will be automatically canceled.

OB patient pre-registration/orientation appointment
