Become a New Patient
We are currently accepting new patients into our practice. Thank you for considering us. To become a new patient:
- Download the MyPrivia App to make appointments, message your provider, or get care on the go.
When you see us for the first time, whether in person or by telemedicine, please complete all steps of our electronic pre-registration process prior to your appointment. Please also have on hand:
- Your referral (if any)
- A list of your doctors
- A list of your medications and allergies
- The name and location of your pharmacy
- Medical test and imaging reports
- Any images you might have pertaining to your pain problem
Any documentation, such as imaging reports and referrals, may be scanned and submitted via the MyPrivia Patient Portal (send a message to Customer Service), via our secure email portal, or faxed to (240) 813-1193. Please do not use your personal email account to send this confidential health information.
To make sure there are no delays in care during your first visit experience, please complete the electronic intake and arrive (or be available by telephone for your virtual visit) 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to ensure your registration is complete before meeting with your new doctor.
If you have an in-office appointment and are unable to complete electronic pre-registration prior to your appointment, please arrive at least 45 minutes ahead of your appointment to allow time to complete intake in the office. In that case, in addition to the items listed above, you will also need to bring:
- Your insurance card
- Valid photo ID
- Office co-pay
In an effort to respect the time of all of our patients, our staff strives to stay on schedule so that other patients do not have to wait.
For patients who arrive late to an appointment for any reason, every effort will be made to see them the same day. However, additional wait times may apply, or appointments may need to be rescheduled so as not to inconvenience our other patients.
Prior to your first appointment, you will be asked to review and sign some of these forms as part of our electronic intake process. Signed forms can then be printed from the patient portal. You can also review and print unsigned forms below.
