PLEASE BRING YOUR INSURANCE CARD TO EVERY VISIT.
New patient Forms – You can now fill these forms out before your visit if you prefer. Be sure to bring them with you to your first appointment.
Annual Physicals on your first visit.
Our policy is Dr. Patel does not do full physicals on your first visit. We have not obtained a full history or a list of concerns and this visit can take over an hour. You will need an initial establish care visit to discuss your situation and concerns. This initial establish care visit will not be covered as your annual wellness exam.
Getting a shot at the office
Please note that Medicare is no longer paying or reimbursing the patient for any shots/ immunizations done in a physicians office – you will need to find a pharmacy that offers this service and get a written script from the physician.
We do offer Vitamin B12, flu shots and trigger point injections at the office.
Diets and nutrition
“Step 1” Diet
Nutritional Counseling – Currently BCBS plans offer 4 visits a year free of charge to see a nutritionist. We recommend Ms. Elizabeth Thompson near Wade Ave.
