For Patients

What To Ask

When you call to make your first appointment with your physician you may want to ask these questions:

  • Where exactly is the office (including floor, room, or suite number)?
  • Where should I park?
  • At what time should I arrive for my appointment?
  • Do I need to bring any personal information to my first appointment?
  • What is my physician's full name and title?
  • What is the cancellation policy for appointments?
  • Does my physician accept my insurance plan?
  • Will the office bill my insurance company, and what am I expected to pay at the time of my appointment?
  • What medical records do I need to bring with me (diagnostic reports, surgical reports, notes from my referring physician, etc.)?
