What to expect


It is hard to predict how long your first visit will last, but new patient visits typically last from 1 to 2 hours, depending on the eye problem. Of course, subsequent visits are usually substantially faster. We appreciate your time and a top priority at Boulder Eye Surgeons is to minimize the time our patients spend waiting. You can further reduce the amount of time you spend in our office by downloading and completing the documents in the Download section in the sidebar.

Patient confidentiality and HIPAA


The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was passed by Congress in 1996. Its primary purpose is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system, help providers access patients' health care information, standardize the way the information is handled, and ensure that patient health information remains strictly confidential.

No issue is more sensitive for people than keeping their personal health information private. Patient confidentiality is a top priority for Boulder Eye Surgeons. The HIPAA law was enacted to provide safeguards for personal health information from disclosure, fraud, and abuse. Health care providers are required by law to notify all patients of the health care provider's privacy practices. By law, no health care can be provided until you acknowledge the receipt of our privacy practices. You can download a copy of our privacy practices in the Download section to the right. We apologize for the inconvenience of this additional paperwork in an already complicated health care system.

More details about this federal law can be found in the handout. You can also access the government's HIPAA website.
