In order to provide you the best possible recommendation and return you to action as soon as possible, it is important that you bring all pertinent information to your initial visit with Dr. Taylor. If you have had any X-rays, CT scans, or MRI’s, please bring the actual disc with you in addition to the radiologist’s report.
- Previous Images (X-ray, CT scan, MRI, etc.)
You need to obtain and bring with you BOTH the actual films as the radiologist generated report. We prefer that you bring these studies in yourself rather than mailing them to our office to ensure that they make it to Dr. Taylor in time for your visit. If you bring a disc, we will upload the images to our system and return the disc to you after your visit.
- Medical Records
Please obtain and bring with you a copy of your medical records, especially if you have already seen another orthopaedic surgeon.
- Operative Reports
If you have previously undergone surgery to the body part of concern, it is important that you bring a copy of the operative report and operative pictures if available.
- Home Medications
Please bring a list of any prescription and over the counter medications that you are currently taking along with their doses.
- Primary Care Referral
If required by your insurance carrier, obtain a referral from your primary care physician and bring it with you.
- Insurance Card
Bring your insurance card. We will need to make a copy of the card for our records.
- Government Issued ID
Bring a photo ID (driver’s license, passport, state-issued ID card, etc.).
- Medical Questionnaires
You will need to complete a medical questionnaire. You can download a copy of the medical questionnaire and complete it before your visit.
- Workers’ Compensation
If this is a work-related injury, please bring a copy of the first report of your injury including your claim number. Bring any imaging films and reports that relate to this injury. If, for any reason, workers’ compensation contests or denies your claim we can submit the charges to your health insurance only if you have followed their rules and have obtained a referral, if required.
You insurance may require a co-pay that must be paid at the time of your visit. We accept cash, check, Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover
- List of Questions
Dr. Taylor will make every effort to answer your questions. Having a list in advance can be helpful.
