Planning your visit with an Emory Physician

  • Arrive 15-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time
  • If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please notify your physician's office as soon as possible

Here is a checklist of what to bring to your appointment

Insurance information

  • Bring your insurance card or necessary insurance information
  • If your insurance carrier requires a referral, bring referral numbers and forms
  • If your treatment is covered by Workers' Compensation, bring a letter of authorization from your insurance carrier

Confirmation or visit number

  • If you received this number when you scheduled your appointment, please bring it with you

Patient information form

  • If you received this form before your appointment, please complete it and bring it with you

Medical records

  • Have your medical records from previous physicians transferred to the office prior to your appointment

X-rays and/or scans

  • If appropriate to your visit, bring any available X-rays or scans or have them transferred to the office prior to your appointment

A list of medications

  • Bring a list of all medications you are currently taking or have recently taken, over-the-counter or prescription
  • Include the strength and dosage of each medication

A list of personal health questions or concerns

  • Sometimes we forget all the things we wanted to tell or ask the doctor, so make a list of your symptoms, questions or concerns before you come to your appointment

Because our patients' health, wellness and safety are of the utmost importance to us, smoking is not permitted in any Emory Healthcare facility. We know this restriction can be difficult for some, and we appreciate your cooperation.
