If you are a new patient or an existing patient with a new problem, we will need you to register with one of our offices. This will allow our staff to determine the nature of your problem and arrange an appointment with one of our specialists most suited to your condition.
Information needed prior to your appointment:
Obtain any applicable diagnostic films and reports (ie. x-rays, MRI, CT scan, bone scans, discograms, EMG's) or confirm that we can obtain them electronically prior to your appointment. For the convenience of our patients, we have a special service arranged with the local hospitals (Concord Hospital, Southern NH Medical Center, St. Joseph's Hospital, Holy Family Hospital, Catholic Medical Center and Elliot Hospital). If we are given at least 48 hours notice, we can have any of your studies transmitted directly to our office from the above listed hospitals. If your studies were performed elsewhere you will need to bring a copy of the films or CD to your appointment.
In addition, if you have been treated elsewhere for this problem it is important to have that information at the time of registration. We will also need any treatment notes forwarded to us prior to your first appointment. This will enable your doctor to give you the most complete and comprehensive evaluation.
Please contact any providers that you have had relevant treatment with in advance, as it may take a few days for them to prepare the records to send over.
Please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment. This will provide adequate time to complete necessary paperwork and obtain new x-rays if indicated. If you prefer to fill out your paperwork prior to your arrival please download and print a copy of our initial evaluation form (this does not change your arrival time). Our forms have been created to focus on specific areas of the body. For patients with diagnoses relating to the brain/head please print the Cranial initial evaluation form. For spine patients please print a copy of our Neck/Back initial evaluation form, and for general orthopaedics please print a copy of our General evaluation. If you have any questions as to which is the best form for you. Please e-mail email@example.com and someone will get back to you.
