Request past medical records
Have you been diagnosed with a specific gynecological disease elsewhere or undergone any gynecological surgery? If so, please request copies of those medical records and bring them along to your initial consult. Additionally, a Patient Request for Medical Records form is available here for your convenience.
Contact your insurance
In some instances, our physician may deem it appropriate and medically necessary to perform an ultrasound. This, in addition to possible blood testing, may be necessary in order to adequately diagnose a specific gynecological problem. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE TO DETERMINE IF ULTRASOUND AND HORMONE BLOOD TESTING CAN BE PERFORMED IN THE SPECIALIST’S OFFICE. If not, please tell us the name of the specific radiology facility and laboratory you must use. Also, ask your insurance if any special referral/preauthorization will be necessary for more certain radiology services. For example, MRI or CT scans.
Prepare for your first visit
So, if you have specific questions or concerns, write them down and bring along at your first visit. Above all others, an informed patient is the most efficient and satisfied consumer of healthcare.
