It is VERY IMPORTANT
that you fill out the enclosed forms before your visit and bring them with you to your appointment. We also request that you bring your INSURANCE CARD(S)
with you for every visit. Please notify the front desk of all insurance changes and any other personal information changes before all visits so we may ensure our records are accurate. This will help avoid any insurance billing problems and difficulties in contacting you with important medical information.
If your insurance requires a CO-PAY
for the office visit or you are a self pay patient, payment is due AT THE TIME OF SERVICE. WE ACCEPT CASH OR CHECKS ONLY
It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
to obtain a REFERRAL
from your primary care physician if it is required by your insurance. Please bring it with you
on the day of your visit. If we do not have your referral, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE YOU
due to insurance requirements.
Please bring a LIST OF ALL MEDICATIONS
you are currently taking (prescription & over-the-counter) and copies of any recent medical records or lab and x-ray results you may have pertaining to your visit with us. Please do not bring x-ray or MRI films with you.
For your convenience, our facility offers multiple on site diagnostic services such as x-rays, bone density testing, ultrasounds and laboratory testing. Please plan to schedule at least 2 hours for your appointment in order to accommodate for any necessary testing at the time of your visit.
