Welcome To Our Practice!

Our staff is committed to the success of your medical treatment and care, and we want to do our very best to exceed your every expectation. We are privileged to have you as one of our patients and we look forward to your visit with us. Please complete the following items prior to your initial visit:

 

1. Complete the New Patient Information form and bring it with you for your visit.

 

2. Complete the New Patient Questionnaire and bring it with you for your visit. 

 

3. Review the list of Medications to Avoid and if you are taking any medications on the list, stay off of them for the number of days indicated. For the most part this includes antihistamines and over-the-counter cough and cold remedies for at least seven (7) days. These medications prohibit us from doing appropriate testing if necessary.

 

4. Obtain a referral for your visit, if required by your insurance company, by contacting your primary care or referring physician. Have the referral sent to our office or bring it with you the day of your appointment.

 

5. Ask your referring physician and specialists to send any related medical records or labs that have been performed.

 

6. Your visit is comprehensive, so prepare to spend up to four (4) hours at our office. The length of this visit also makes it difficult for younger children or siblings to accompany parents so you may want to make other arrangements for them.

 

7. Bring your primary and secondary insurance card(s) and driver's license.

 

8. Come prepared to pay your co-pay, deductible, and coinsurance as these are due at the time of your visit and will be collected upon your arrival. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. For patients with high deductible plans, please come prepared to pay the first $200.00 of your deductible, if not met, and we'll work with you to setup a payment plan for the remaining balance. In the event that you do not have any insurance coverage, please contact our office to discuss available resources.

 

9. Review the Welcome to Our Practice Brochure . This brochure contains contact information about our practice and how we care for our patients and it summarizes some of our patient-care policies. An understanding of this brochure will minimize any confusion between you and our office.

 

10. In the event you may not be able to keep this appointment, please contact our office at least five (5) days in advance. This will allow us to serve you and other patients better.

 

Once again, we want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to meet your medical needs and if you should have any further questions, please feel free to contact our office. We are looking forward to seeing you!
