Thank you for trusting us with your health care. We promise to do our best to provide you with the finest care available. The information on this cover sheet answers common questions our new patients have. We hope you will find this information helpful and reassuring.
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.
eClinicalWorks offers an online patient portal where you can access your records and input medical information to help save time during your appointments. We prefer that all new patients fill out their new patient paperwork on our patient portal. If you provided us an email address, you should receive and invitation to activate patient portal. You may also use this link ttps://mycw66.ecwcloud.com/portal8682/jsp/100mp/login_otp.jsp to access the patient portal.
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.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office. We look forward to seeing you soon.
