For Uveitis Patients

What should you expect for your first visit?

During your first appointment we will obtain a detailed medical and ocular history and will review referral notes and treatment notes provided by other doctors involved in your care. You will have a comprehensive ocular examination and undergo additional ocular diagnostic testing as deemed necessary. Such testing helps better understand the extent of inflammation in the eye. Following your eye appointment, you will likely need some lab testing and imaging tailored to your eye disease.

  • Due to the complexity of some diagnoses, your initial evaluation and diagnostic testing can last up to 3 hours.
  • Complete your Registration Forms
  • There may be additional insurance authorizations that our staff will help you manage.

"Dr. Recchia was super! He greeted me (the mom) when he entered the room and then, greeted my 13 year old daughter. He asked her to pronounce her name for him and then he called her by name during the exam. He was able to get to her to Smile and laugh during a scary and intimidating process. We would definitely go back if needed."
