Preparing for Appointments

Thank you for choosing The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic as your orthopaedic provider. From the moment you arrive at our office, you’re in good hands. During every visit you will be seen and cared for by an orthopaedic surgeon. New patients of all ages are always welcome – we look forward to meeting you!

Please Bring the Following Items to Your Appointment so we Can Better Serve You:

  • Photo identification
  • Your health insurance card and co-pay
  • A list of your current medications and their doses
  • A list of any known drug allergies and symptoms you have from taking these medicines
  • Your insurance referral, if needed
  • Any x-rays, MRIs, CT or bone scans related to your condition / injury
  • A list of your questions and concerns
  • Your claim number if you’re being seen regarding a worker’s compensation injury

Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment to fill in a health questionnaire and supply your medical details. Our practice uses electronic medical records (EMR), therefore no forms will need to be filled out prior to your office visit.

Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

What to Wear For an Appointment or X-Ray

Please wear clothing that allows the physician to easily examine your injured area. If possible, wear shorts when being seen for a knee, hip or spine problem (or bring shorts to the appointment). For shoulder evaluations, please wear a sleeveless top that allows for visualization of the shoulder. Ladies, please ensure that underclothing is worn to allow the shoulder to be examined without the outer attire being removed.

Preparing For an Open MRI Appointment

There is no special preparation for a MRI and no restrictions on your diet. If possible, wear comfortable clothing and remove all metal, including jewelry.
