For your first visit to the clinic, please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time in order to complete the registration process. For follow-up visits, please arrive 10 minutes before the appointed time for check in. Typically, for initial visits you can expect to spend approximately one hour at the office and 30-45 minutes for subsequent appointments. The actual amount of time may vary, sometimes due to factors beyond our control.
Please bring a picture I.D., Social Security number, and insurance information, as well as pertinent details about your condition including X-rays, MRI and EMG results, current medications, and any past medical records. We encourage you to take notes about your orthopedic condition, including exactly where you hurt, the date your issue began, what you where doing at the time, any test results or treatments attempted, and what activities and positions seem to make your condition worse or better. Any details on previous similar problems will also help us understand and diagnose your condition. Because our waiting room area is small, we ask that you limit the number of people you bring with you. If you have children, please try to arrange for a babysitter as we do not allow unsupervised minors in any area of the clinic. If you have trouble with English, please either bring or request in advance from us, an interpreter. If you need assistance in any way, a helper is welcome. If you are a minor, we will need your parent or guardian to sign your documents.
Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Shorts or baggy pants are practical for a knee exam, for example. Swimsuits (two-piece for women) beneath your clothes can be convenient. Wearing slippers or sandals that are easy to remove is very practical. If you are a runner, athlete, or have a foot problem, bring along your athletic shoes.
