For your convenience we offer two, easy options to request an appointment.

You can request an appointment online by registering for our Patient Portal or call our office at 925-939-8585. Please note that an adult must accompany patients who are under age 18.

You will need the following information available when scheduling:
  • Patient name, address, telephone number

  • Name of the referring physician
  • Reason for visit
  • Date of injury and how it occurred
  • What imaging, if any, has taken place (X-rays, MRI, etc.).
