In order to make your first visit as efficient as possible, please call our office to obtain a user name and password for the Patient Portal on our website. It also will help if you arrive at the office with information we’ll need, such as your medical history, your referring physician, and your health insurance. You can fill out needed forms online before your visit. If you prefer, you can also print each form and bring them with you.
We also ask that you bring the following with you for every visit:
- Your doctor’s written or electronic referral from your primary care physician, if you have one, including the doctor’s address and contact information
- Your insurance cards, both primary and secondary, including any authorization from your insurance company*
- Picture identification – driver’s license or other photo identification
- A written list of your current medications, including the dosage of the medication and the frequency you take it (for example – daily, twice a day, once a week)
- Any previous relevant test results
For Your First Visit…
When you first come to our office, you’ll have an initial evaluation. We’ll discuss your current hearing circumstances and determine the best way to address any problems you may be having.
After your hearing evaluation, we’ll discuss the best approaches to help you hear better. Based on your individual hearing needs, we may discuss hearing aids, their styles and costs, and any other equipment or therapies you might benefit from.
As we tell our patients, improve your hearing, and improve your life.
In Addition to Medical Information…
You’re also asked to bring in the following forms. They can be downloaded from this site.
* Insurance policies can differ greatly in coverage of hearing aids and similar equipment. We do our best to work with insurance companies, but not all companies have coverage. We recommend that you consult with your insurance company to find the extent of any coverage. Insurance copay, insurance deductible, or any outstanding balance owed to the practice is due at the time of service. This can be paid by cash, check or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express), as well as debit cards for your Health Savings Account.
