Becoming a Patient

Preparing for your appointment

To assist in a smooth check-in process you should bring the following items with you to your next appointment or scheduled procedure:

  1. Patient’s social security number
  2. Current insurance card
  3. Valid photo I.D.
  4. Employment information
  5. Name of primary care provider
  6. List of medications the patient is current taking
  7. Bring a copy of patient’s advance directive (if available) for patient record filing purposes

For appointments involving procedures, be sure to contact your insurance company before your visit to meet any pre-authorization requirements. If requirements are not met, the patient’s benefits may be reduced leaving the patient responsible for most or all of the hospital bill.
