Follow-up visits are important because they provide the opportunity for you and your clinician to review your treatment progress, side effects, lab results, and progress toward your treatment goals.
How often will follow-up visits be scheduled?
Once treatment is initiated you will be expected to attend regular follow-up visits. Your clinician will want to follow you closely until your condition is considered clinically stable; this often means more frequent follow up visits initially, but over time you may be eligible for an extended duration of time between appointments (not to exceed 3 months).
When should I arrive for my appointment?
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment start time to ensure adequate time to complete the check-in process including updating insurance and demographic information and making payment for services. Arriving late for a scheduled appointment impedes your clinician’s ability to provide you with the best quality care and it often makes your clinician’s schedule run behind for the remainder of the day; thus, patients who arrive 10 or more minutes late for their appointments will be asked to wait for another opening or reschedule.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Please bring your insurance card and photo ID to each appointment and inform our receptionist if there have been any information changes since your last visit (i.e., name changes, address and telephone change, or insurance changes). You should also bring cash or credit card to make payment for any copayments, deductibles, coinsurance, or other fees.
