Your First Appointment at the Breast Center
When you come to our office, you will meet with your physician, nurses, and other medical staff. Many patients find it helpful to bring a written list of questions about their treatment or course of action.
First Time Visitors, please bring the following with you:
- Any Mammograms, ultrasounds, MRI films, pathology slides, and reports
- List of preexisting conditions/medical history
- Insurance card(s)
- Referral from your primary care physician (if needed)
- Pre-authorization (if required by insurance company)
You will need to complete information and insurance forms before seeing a physician. We will file your claim with your insurance company and complete any needed follow-up on your account. Please be aware that if your insurance company rejects your claim, you are responsible for the balance. During your initial visit, you will also be asked to sign an authorization release. This allows us to send your medical record to others, whom you designate, and only upon your request.
Please note that all patients who require pre-authorization must have a referral before being seen by a physician
