Preparing for your first dermatology appointment

Your first visit at Southwest Michigan Dermatology in Portage will consist of meetings with physicians, physicians, assistants, and other support personnel who are experienced and trained in caring for people with dermatological issues and conditions.

We have our medical forms available to view, download, and print online or, if you prefer, we can send them to you by mail. These forms will need to be completed prior to your first appointment with us.  You will also want to bring your health insurance card if you’re insured and a list of questions you have for your provider. Be sure to check with your health insurance company to see if prior authorization is required.

Note: Employee jobs were not harmed due to the installation of our check in kiosks. The kiosks are in addition to our normal staffing levels.

The kiosks are here to make things run smoother for patients, including getting back to the providers faster, more accurate insurance billing information, and allowing our team the opportunity to spend quality time with patients.

Your concern about employee jobs has been very touching and we thank you!
