Practice Fusion, our EHR (Electronic Health Record) system will remind you of your appointment 1 week and, again at 1 day prior to your appointment. You will also receive a confirmation email from my scheduling staff after you schedule your appointment, which will include a reminder to complete all required paperwork PRIOR to your appointment. The forms are all available below.
We all despise onerous paperwork. However, federal healthcare laws now require many forms to be completed on your first visit with any healthcare provider and additional forms to be completed on all subsequent visits. There is nothing we can do to avoid having you complete these forms and we are not legally able to see you until they are completed.
Please download ALL required documents according to the instructions below. We have included all of the required forms on this page for your convenience, as well as in the email from my office. These forms can be printed and hand-written/typed or mailed via regular mail if you do not have the ability to complete them electronically.
Unfortunately, because of the federal regulations, these documents are not elective, even if they do not directly impact your orthopedic care at AZISKS. They are legal documents so please complete all aspects accurately and sign them. Thank you very much for your assistance and cooperation.
If you need to reach us regarding questions about these forms or to change your appointment, please visit CONTACTS page on this website and use the corresponding staff email (not secure) or enroll in the patient portal (you will receive an email invite for this after your first visit). Once you are enrolled, you can direct message any staff member directly and securely through the EHR system.
Please note that even if you completed forms at any other medical practice in the past or recently, these forms MUST be completed prior to evaluation and treatment at AZISKS. We prefer that you complete all of the forms electronically and submit them PRIOR to your appointment to avoid late fees. Failure to submit ALL forms prior to your appointment OR bring them completed to your appointment will result in a $25 charge if your appointment is delayed as a result of incomplete paperwork.
