Appointment & Scheduling

All scheduling of office visits is done by the New Patient Coordinator. All scheduling of surgeries is done by the appropriate doctor’s medical assistant.

Please bring the following items with you to appointments:

  • Your insurance card or other health coverage information. Some insurance carriers require you to have a referral or primary care physician authorization before treatment is given. Please check with your carrier if you are in doubt. If your insurance carrier requires that you have a referral, please note that these can take up to 10 business days to obtain and we cannot see you until we have the referral.
  • Walking shorts and athletic shoes (knee examination only).
  • Xrays or MRI’s not older than twelve or eighteen months (if available).
  • Clinic notes or operative reports from your referring physician that relate to your condition.
  • List of all current medications you are taking.

Payment in full is expected at the time of your visit. Exceptions include workers compensation, Medicare, and preferred provider contracts (copay only). Check your insurance information to identify whether University Sports Medicine is a preferred provider for your policy. For your convenience we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash or check.

Medical Records

If in the future you need to request certain medical records from our office, please be aware that the request could take ten days to two weeks before you receive the information. We will make every effort to fulfill all medical records requests as quickly as possible.

Billing Information

Like most physicians’ offices, we request payment at the time of service unless we are a preferred provider for the insurance company or employer. Contact our office for a complete list of all the plans we accept. Contact our business office if you have any questions regarding your coverage.

Our surgical suites are equipped with the most advanced instrumentation and equipment currently available.
