Patient Guide

Appointment/Procedure Preparation

Upper Valley Rheumatology is currently accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, please call (937) 332-0306.

Any special instructions regarding your appointment will be discussed with you during the initial phone conversation.

What to Expect

Upon arriving at your initial appointment, you will be asked to fill out a Patient Registration Form.

In addition, you may be asked to complete a Medical Records Release Form, which allows our office to obtain medical records from your previous doctors.

If you are a new patient, please bring your health insurance card and a list of all medications. Established patients should bring new insurance card(s) when applicable. You may be asked to complete a new Patient Registration Form once a year.

All patients should come prepared to pay any co-pays, deductibles, or co-insurances at the time of their visit.

After Your Visit or Procedure

After your visit, you will receive instructions for making a follow-up appointment. If tests have been ordered, you will receive a follow-up phone call or a letter with your results.
