When you see a new doctor, you may have questions about what to expect at your first visit.
Our specialty group is exclusively devoted to the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders.
When checking in at either of our two offices, our service representative will request the following information:
- Insurance card and co-payment, if applicable
- Physician referral, if required by your insurance provider
- Name and address of the referring physician
- A completed health history form – available online at Patient Forms
- Completed health history questionnaires – available online at Patient Forms
- Copies of other medical records, if appropriate
- Current medication bottle(s)
You should arrive with a comfortably full bladder, in order to be evaluated properly.
You will be seen in a private examination room and have your blood pressure measured by a nurse. She will also review any allergies and medications with you. You will be asked to undress from the waist down and put on a gown. We may need to test your urine by passing a small catheter into your bladder to collect a sterile sample.
After the doctor has recorded your medical history, you will be examined. You may need to be examined while standing, as well as lying down with your feet in the supports. You may lose urine or bowel during portions of the examination. This is actually a very important finding, so we want you to be comfortable enough that you are not embarrassed.
Following the examination, the doctor will discuss any test that is recommended, as well as treatments that may be offered to you. When your visit is complete, you will return to the reception desk, where our service representatives will be happy to answer questions about scheduling future tests or treatments.
Our team is devoted to providing you with the highest quality of female pelvic medical and surgical care available. Your comfort and care is our priority.
