Preparing for Your Visit

Going to see the doctor can be stressful enough (don’t worry–we don’t take it personally) without having to worry about paperwork and insurance. There are a few things you can do to prepare for your appointment to keep the process running smoothly.

  • Bring your insurance card to every visit
  • If this is your first visit or if your insurance has changed, contact your insurance carrier prior to coming in to ensure that your physician is included in their network.
  • If you are coming in for a well-woman visit, contact your insurance carrier to see if they have any policy limitations.
  • If your insurance carrier requires a referral from your primary care physician, please be sure to bring your referral with you to your appointment.
  • Think about or even write down any questions you may have for your doctor so you don’t forget to go over important information with them during your appointment
