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.
