At your first appointment, please bring the following:

  • Any pertinent medical records
  • Lab reports and a copy of your sinus CT scan or MRI
  • Please bring a copy of the scan on a disc if possible; we prefer to review the actual scan rather than read a report.

First Appointment – What to expect

When you first arrive, our office staff will greet you and check you in. They will ask you to complete paperwork. Some of this paperwork will help us take better care of you, some is required by insurance companies and the government.

During the check-in process, we will make a copy of your insurance card, accept any copayments and ask if we can take a picture of you to attach to your electronic medical record file. This picture is very helpful in terms of patient safety, as it helps us link you to your records. This is especially helpful when we speak with you on the phone, consulting with your other doctors, and immediately before procedures.

Our staff will escort you to an exam room to review your basic medical history, reason for visit and prior treatments. Dr. Naseri will greet you and begin the evaluation with a conversation about your medical history. He will perform a general ear, nose and throat examination. It is likely that they will recommend a more detailed examination, called endoscopy, which is described below.

Sinonasal endoscopy or flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy

As part of your evaluation, an endoscopic examination may be indicated as part of the examination. This is a common practice to evaluate the nose/sinuses or the voice box, larynx. The exam is usually not painful and is well tolerated by all patients, and feels like a spaghetti in the nose.

To prepare for the examination, our staff will spray two medications into your nose. The decongestant oxymetazoline (Afrin), which opens the passage allowing more room for the scope to pass within the nose, and a topical anesthetic (lidocaine) to prevent discomfort or sneezing. Fortunately, this lasts for a few minutes.
