Initial Appointment

For your initial appointment please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment. This will allow us sufficient time to complete the necessary paperwork.

New Patients

Your first visit to Monterey Spine & Joint establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page and visit our Billing & Insurance page. You can even save some time for your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.

New patients are asked to bring:

  • All pertinent medical records, X-rays, and referral paperwork.
  • A completed copy of the patient information sheets mailed to all new patients.

Please bring these completed forms to the office at the time of your first visit. Do not mail them. Completion of the necessary paperwork prior to your appointment date will increase the efficiency of the visit.

All patients

  • Present all current insurance card(s) at each visit.
  • Obtain any required insurance referrals depending on plan.
  • Please dress so your injury area can be easily examined and/or X-rayed. For example, wear shorts if you visit for a knee problem.

To cancel an appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance so we can give that time to another patient.

We understand that your time is valuable, and we make every effort to run on time. However, emergencies occur that cause delays. We apologize in advance if we keep you waiting.
