HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PHYSICIAN’S QUESTIONS

Help your physician diagnose and treat your condition by being prepared to answer the following questions:

  • What are your main symptoms?
  • How long have you had your symptoms?
  • What were you doing when your symptoms started?
  • Have you had this problem in the past?
  • What was the diagnosis?
  • How was it treated?
  • How and when did an injury occur? How was it treated?
  • Have you had any injuries in the past to the same area? Do you have any continuing problems because of the previous injury?
  • Have you ever had surgery in that area?
  • What activities, related to sports, work, or your lifestyle, make your symptoms better or worse?
  • Do you think that activities related to your job or hobbies caused your symptoms?
  • What home treatment measures have you tried? Did they help?
  • What nonprescription medicines have you taken? Did they help?
  • Make a list to avoid forgetting any specifics.

LATE ARRIVAL, CANCELLATION & NO-SHOW POLICIES

Please arrive for your scheduled appointment on time. We recommend that new patients arrive 20 minutes early to fill out any necessary paperwork. Patients who arrive more than 15 minutes after their scheduled time may need to be rescheduled.

All of our physicians and therapists at 417 Sports Medicine and Orthopedics believe strongly in the importance of every patient keeping their appointments. When patients fail to keep their scheduled appointment, they miss out on crucial medical information regarding their recovery.

Please be advised that we require no less than a 24-hour notice whenever an office/physical therapy appointment is cancelled.

  • If you have an appointment on a Monday before 12:00 pm, you must call before 12:00 pm on Friday before your scheduled appointment if you will be billed a No-Show fee.
  • Insurance plans are not responsible for No-Show Fee’s: it is the responsibility of the patient to pay the bill upon receipt.
  • If you need to cancel an appointment and it is after hours or during the weekend, you may leave a message with our answering service. We recommend that you make a note of the name of the service operator/receptionist whenever you call to cancel or reschedule an appointment.
