Your First Clinic Visit
Upon arrival in the clinic area you will first be seen at the registration desk. There, we will verify your personal and insurance information. You will proceed to the waiting area and then to an exam room. During this time you will be asked questions concerning your health and the reason you are seeing the physician. You may be examined by a physician assistant or orthopaedic resident before you are seen by your surgeon. If x-rays are needed, they will be obtained in the clinic. If you have other x-rays regarding your condition, please bring them with you.
After you have been seen by your doctor, you will stop at the discharge desk to obtain any follow-up appointments you may need. At any time, please do not hesitate to ask for assistance or information. Your satisfaction, as well as quality care, will always be our utmost concern.
