What to Expect During Your Appointment
Upon your arrival, sign in with the front desk and turn your paperwork in to the receptionist. If we do not already have it, she will need a copy of your current proof of insurance and photo ID.
The receptionist will call you back to the window to collect your co-pay, return your insurance cards and photo ID. Please relax in the waiting area and one of our office staff will be with you shortly. Please appreciate that we strive to keep on schedule, however, we treat many extremely ill patients. Patients with multiple issues may require a longer visit and unexpected emergencies can occur. We value your time and attempt to give each patient the necessary attention required.
Our staff will direct you to the exam room and take a brief history, including the reason for your visit, symptoms, and concerns you may have about your medical condition. Your vitals will be taken and your electronic medical record will be updated.
Next, Dr. Rundbaken will take a detailed history, reviewing any studies or records and perform an exam. A diagnosis will be determined and treatments recommended. If further testing is required, you will be given lab and x-ray information and directed to the appropriate facility based on your insurance. Certain testing is scheduled by our staff.
All labs and radiology results that are ordered by Dr. Rundbaken will be sent back to him for his review. A follow up visit is required to discuss results.
Please write down any questions before your visit if possible and feel free to ask any questions during your visit as they arise. It may be helpful to bring a spouse or good friend with you to your appointment to help with instructions.
