Policies & Paperwork
Your Office Visit
We want to make your visit to the office as pleasant and as comfortable as possible. We strive to provide you with a relaxed and stress free environment.
ARTHRITIS CARE is open Monday through Friday. If for any reason you cannot keep an appointment, with exception to emergency, we require 48 hour notice or a charge will be incurred for the time set aside.
We require an office visit in order to complete any disability, parking, jury duty, out of work, back to work or any other forms or narrative summaries that either you or your representative may request. There is an administrative fee to cover the cost of this service.
New Patient appointments
To schedule a new patient appointment, the first step is to have your doctors office send a referral and notes.
Once the paperwork has been received, we will contact you to book an appointment. Next, fill out our new patient packet which can be downloaded here, or we can mail you a packet to complete.
Please return the completed registration forms prior to your visit. They can be mailed, faxed, or dropped off at our office. If you have not been able to complete them in advance, please arrive 20 to 30 minutes early to allow adequate time to complete them in the office.
Please bring any pertinent information to the visit.
Always bring an accurate and complete list of your medications, or the medication themselves.
We will often attempt to combine other services with the new patient visit. These other services may include X-rays, joint and soft tissue procedures, laboratory tests, and nerve conduction tests.
