Office Visits



Welcome to our office.

So that we may render the finest treatment possible, we have adopted an appointment policy that will achieve that end with the least inconvenience to all. While we know that you will agree that it is never possible to satisfy everyone's scheduling requirements, we also know that our policy is a sound one that works for the vast majority of patients. All long appointments, i.e. those lasting longer than fifteen minutes, will be scheduled between 8:30 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. Appointments of a shorter duration are generally scheduled between 2:30 P.M. and 4:45 P.M. Occasionally, there will be time available for the shorter appointments in the morning or early afternoon hours, if this arrangement is more practical for you. During the summer months, there is greater flexibility in scheduling since demands on everyone's time seem to lessen. Treatment conferences are scheduled during anytime throughout the day, if time allows, but are usually at 4:45 to accommodate our patients and their parents work schedules.

We make a great effort to see every patient without delay at the scheduled time. Arriving late; and for that matter breaking an appointment without notice, is extremely disruptive. Therefore we would appreciate your making a maximum effort to keep every appointment and to be punctual. If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please call the office and notify our staff.  An inordinate number of broken appointments or being chronically late will necessitate an additional fee.

 If you have any questions regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to ask. Dr. Tigani and his staff look forward to answering any questions in regard to the office policies and procedures.
