Your Visit

Directions to our office can be found on the Contact page of this website.

With thousands of new skin cancers diagnosed each year, Dr. George thinks it is important to do a full body scan to evaluate your entire skin health. There are countless patients who come in for acne and have a skin cancer diagnosed. Full body evaluations will be performed on all new patients and on a yearly basis for established patients.

Please bring your pharmacy information with you. In order to decrease errors and save paper we have adopted an electronic prescribing system.

Note: Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult for their first visit.  After your first visit with your child, you will be provided with an optional consent form found here that will allow you to authorize future visits and or treatments in your absence.

Financial Information

Your insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Financial responsibility rests with the patient for deductibles, co-insurances and non-covered services. Insurance coverage is a variable and we cannot guarantee what services will be covered by your particular plan. If you have an HMO type of insurance plan, then you will need to get a referral from your family doctor or primary care provider. It is your responsibility to know the requirements of your insurance program. We will ask you to sign an authorization form requesting that insurance payments be sent directly to our office when appropriate.

Co-Payments are due at time of service. For your convenience; we accept personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, and cash. We do not accept AMEX or Discover.

A no-show fee of $50.00 will be charged to dermatology related patients who fail to show for their appointment and who give less than 24 hours notice of cancellation.  For aesthetics patients, your credit card will be requested to guarantee your appointment.  If an aesthetics client does not show up for their appointment and does not provide notice of a cancellation prior to their appointment, they will be charged for 50% of the planned services on the card used during the reservation process.

Pathology, Labs and X-rays

Surgical specimens are sent to a lab to be analyzed. The fee for this is a separate charge from the office visit and may be billed directly by the processing lab. Results are usually available 7 to 10 days after the test has been performed. Questions regarding payments for laboratory services should be discussed with the lab.

Prescription Refills

Prescription refill requests will be taken only during regular office hours. Hours of operation are 8am-5pm (M-TH), 8am-1:30pm (F).

Switching Physicians? / Patient Records Release

Do you need medical records from a prior physician sent to our office, or your records from WDC released? If so, fill out the online form below to initiate the authorization process.  We have developed this online form to expedite the process so you don’t have to print, scan, or physically send us your release in the mail.  Upon completion, this form is sent to WDC to process and a copy of the completed release will be sent to your email for your records.

Authorization for Use or Disclosure of Health Information – Online Form

If you would prefer to  print the ‘Authorization for Use or Disclosure form’ and sign, you can find the PDF link below.  You will need to bring this with you to the office for our staff to process.

Minors visiting the practice

In an effort to meet the rules and standards set forth by HIPAA and the NC Medical Board we require a signed consent from the parents or legal guardian of any minor (anyone < 18 yrs old) who may receive treatments for a diagnosis that is non-life threatening. This consent form is your way of authorizing WDC and it’s medical providers to evaluate your child in the case you cannot accompany them to their visit.

Consent to Treat a Minor without a Parent or Guardian Present

Aesthetic Clients : No-Show and Cancellation Policy and Fees

In an effort to improve the availability of our Aestheticians to our loyal clients, we have a no-show and cancellation policy in place.  The policy is as follows:  A client must cancel their appointment 1 day prior to their treatment to avoid a cancellation/no-show fee.  Any client who notifies our staff during the day of the treatment or simply does not show up for their appointment will be charged 1/2 of the booked charges for their appointment.  Any last minute cancellations out of your control should be communicated to our staff or your aesthetician for waiver consideration.  No-show example: if you book a Facial for $150 and do not show up to your appointment, you will be billed for $75.
