What to Bring to Your Appointment

The first appointment will need a driver’s license or similar photo identification, insurance card (if insurance used), Medicare Card (if Medicare), and new patient forms including patient registration, patient information, and HIPAA regulations. We have surveys that are required for compliance to various insurance networks. For lower extremity injuries, please bring a pair of shorts so our therapist can easily access the target area. Our receptionist will assist you in completion of these forms. 

Patient Forms
