Thank you for entrusting us with your rheumatology needs. We want to assure you that our team of healthcare professionals will make every effort to provide you with the very best of care. We have complied this information with the intention for it to be helpful and reassuring. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
It is important that you fill out the requested new patient forms before your visit. Allow yourself at least 30 minutes to fill them out. Upon completion, you may mail them to us prior to your appointment; or bring them with you when you come.
Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment. Doing so will allow sufficient time for the front office staff to process your information, and get you in to see the doctor on time.
Your first appointment will last for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Subsequent “follow-up” visits usually last around 30 minutes. You will receive confirmation of your follow-up visit prior to your appointment.
Please bring your insurance card(s) and driver’s license with you for every visit. We will scan them before each appointment. This has proven to be the most effective way to follow all of the rules that insurance companies require of us.
Also, be aware of the co-pay amount, deductible, or percentage total that your insurance company requires, and be prepared to pay as you check-in. We accept cash, or the following credit cards: VISA, MasterCard, Discover & American Express.
Please bring all medications you are currently taking.
Finally, due to the amount of time reserved for your visit, should you need to cancel or reschedule, we kindly ask that you call and give us 24 hours notice of cancellation. This is necessary to avoid a cancellation fee, and enables us to schedule someone else for that time.
Thank you for your cooperation. We hope your visit is a pleasant one. And again, if you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at 727-223-9610.
