How To Get Started
Becoming a Patient at An Oasis of Healing
To find out more about becoming a patient at An Oasis of Healing, just call our office at 480-834-5414 so we can learn more about you. Once we know what your goals and desires are, then we can discuss the different aspects and requirements of our program and how they might help you specifically.
Once you have spoken with a Patient Admissions Coordinator, the next step will be to send us your medical records. Below is a list of the medical records you will need to send. You can fax them to 480-834-5418.

- MOST RECENT doctor notes ONLY where summary of case is provided if available
We will review your records and then discuss setting up a 30 minute phone consult with Dr Goodyear to review any medical questions you have about components of our program or your situation and how we might help you in your healing process.
After the conversation with Dr Goodyear we can provide an outline of the program he would order based on the conversation with you. This is a preliminary estimate of what your program would be here at Oasis.
Once you have reviewed the proposed plan of care and have all your questions and concerns answered, the next step in the process would be to schedule your initial in-person consult with Dr Goodyear and/or your arrival at the center.
Our Patient Admissions Department will be in regular contact with you as you prepare for your visit to An Oasis of Healing. We will call you to explain the process of how to access our Patient Portal to complete your new patient information. We will provide you with an overview of what to expect and also give you information on what to bring with you to the center. We are also available to answer whatever questions come up including information about transportation and places to stay.
