Making an appointment is as simple as picking up the phone and calling our office. You may become our patient either by making the appointment yourself or through a physician referral. We also welcome the opportunity to provide second opinions. We know how stressful initial diagnosis is, and we strive to keep waiting time for an appointment to a minimum but please realize that delays can occur due to emergencies and unforeseen patient needs.
In order to evaluate your health, it is extremely important that we receive your medical records prior to or at the time of your scheduled visit. Please arrange to have your doctor send these to our office or you may bring them with you the day of your appointment. The physician will need to review any pathology, surgical reports, x-ray scans, laboratory results, medical notes and in-patient records. We accept most insurance carriers, and our staff will work with you before you come in for your appointment to help ensure that you will have the coverage you need. If you have a managed care plan that requires a referral from your primary care physician, it is your responsibility to make sure you have obtained a referral. Your referral may have a limit on the number of visits you are allowed and/or an expiration date. Please monitor this information and obtain updated referrals as required. Co-payments, deductibles and non-insurance covered medical services are due at the time of service.
Bring your insurance cards, which will help assure accurate billing information. Please show
our receptionist your insurance card at every visit. If you are covered by a secondary insurance plan or have a Medicare supplemental plan, please make sure we have that information.
Let us know whenever you change your address, telephone number, employment, marital
Bring a list of your medications to each office visit; we review the prescription and over-the-
counter medications that you are currently taking. If it is more convenient, bring your medication bottles with you. Remember that over the counter drugs include vitamins, herbs, aspirin, Tylenol, etc. Please allow a 48-hour turnaround for prescription refills. Also, some prescriptions for pain medications do not allow for refills. As a result, we request that you let us know prior to running out of your medication.
Write down any questions or concerns that you may have to discuss with your physician.
If you wish, bring someone with you to your visit(s) to help listen to your physician’s comments
and responses to your questions. However, due to the size of our examination rooms and time restraints; we must limit this to one guest per patient. Please notify us if you would like to schedule a conference involving multiple family members/friends so that we may arrange adequate time and space to accommodate your request.
Make your next appointment every time you visit the office.
We understand that emergencies and special needs can occur, and we will do our very best to
accommodate your specific needs. We request that should you need to cancel an appointment that you provide as much notice as possible in order for us to enable another patient to see the doctor.
Once you make an appointment, all facets of our services–from the latest research findings to the most advanced technology–will be made available for your healing. Please complete the enclosed patient registration form and history questionnaire before your first appointment. Again, thank you for choosing our practice & welcome!
