What to Expect When Visiting

E-mail Print PDF
Welcome to our practice. Our specialty group is devoted to providing you the highest quality female pelvic medical and surgical care available.

You may have questions about what to expect at your first visit.

When checking in at any of our three offices, our service representative will request the following information:
  • Valid, government-issued picture ID.
  • Insurance card and co-payment, if applicable.
  • Name and address of the referring physician.
  • Physician referral, if required by your insurance provider.
  • A completed health history form- Available online (Hyperlink)
  • Copies of other medical records, if appropriate.
  • List of current medications
After checking in, a nurse will review any allergies and medications you are taking as well as record your blood pressure and weight.

The doctor will then meet with you to record your medical history. After the doctor has recorded your medical history, you will be examined in a private examination room with both the doctor and nurse present. You will be asked to undress from the waist down and put on a gown.

If you have a bladder problem and/or pelvic organ prolapse (Hyperlink), we may need to test your urine by passing a small catheter into your bladder to collect a sterile sample.

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 staff will answer questions about scheduling future tests, treatments, or follow-up visits.

Your comfort is our highest priority as we strive to provide you with the highest quality care.  For additional information, please visit the following website sponsored by the American Urogynecologic Society:      voicesforpfd.org
