We appreciate the trust placed in us to provide your specialty care. The following information clarifies our respective responsibilities in providing and receiving information. Our patient care procedures have been developed over time to maximize your visit experience and outcome.
New patients are usually referred by their primary care physician or other specialist. If you have received diagnostic testing of any kind (x-ray, MRI, CT, laboratory) related to this visit, please bring the test results with you or have then forwarded to us prior to your visit.
If you are insured with a health maintenance organization (HMO), your primary care physician will need to complete a prior authorization through your insurance BEFORE you are scheduled. Without a referral, we will not be able to bill your insurance and you may be asked to pay in full at the time of your visit.
WE DO NOT SEE ANY TYPE OF ACCIDENT RELATED CASES OR WORKMEN’S COMPENSATION.
PLEASE BRING THE FOLLOWING TO YOUR VISIT INSURANCE CARD AND PHOTO ID, ANY MEDICAL RECORDS
We attempt to contact patients 24-48 hours prior to their appointment. Our schedule is usually booked several weeks in advance, so we ask for at least 1 business day notice for cancellation. Failure to notify the office of cancellation at least one full business day prior to your scheduled appointment or not appearing for your scheduled appointment may result in a No Show Charge.
Test results are given during a follow up visit only. You will be asked to schedule an appointment to discuss results of any tests ordered by the physician to avoid misunderstandings and improve the patient care outcome. Please do not contact the office for a copy, fax, or verbal disclosure prior to your follow up appointment.
NOTE You will be contacted should any result require action prior to your scheduled follow up appointments.
Your primary care physician will complete any disability, FMLA, or functional capacity evaluation forms.
Medications prescribed by our physician may be refilled if you have been seen within the last year. Refills will not be approved after office hours or on weekends. Please allow 24 business hours for any refill request.
Please allow our staff 24 business hours to return any phone calls.
In terms of absence of the providers, test results/advice regarding disease process will be discussed/revealed on his/her return or by a qualified office staff. In the meantime, patience and good manners are expected from the patients keeping in view the sanctity of the practice.
All the new patients will be seen by Dr. Khan while his Physician Assistant/Nurse Practitioner will see the follow ups. Exceptions can only be made depending on individual case basis.
