You will have to fill out some paperwork. You will receive information regarding your rights and responsibilities as a patient and a patient survey to fill out when you get home after your procedure. The survey comes with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to send back to us. You will also receive a pamphlet with information about HIPAA-Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The receptionist will make copies of your insurance cards, so be sure to bring them with you to your appointment.
After checking in at the office you will be given an armband with your information and an armband with your allergies. You will then be taken to admitting where you’ll be prepared for your procedure. We’ll have you change into a patient gown, assess your vital signs and start an IV. It is during the admitting process where you speak to your physician about the risk and benefits of your procedure.
