Your First Visit at Black Tie Health™
Our goal is for your first visit to make the best impression possible. Below, you'll find some things we ask you to do prior to your first visit so that we can do the best we can at taking care of you.
Preparing for Your First Visit
If you are taking any non-steroidal inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), it's best to stop them 2-3 days prior to your appointment, if possible. Examples of NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Motrin), naproxen (Aleve), meloxicam (Mobic). If you are taking aspirin for heart reasons, please continue taking it.
Please bring a list of all medications you are currently taking, including the doses and frequency for each medication.
If you have had any blood work done within the last 3 months, please bring in a copy with you. Also, if you have had any imaging done for the same complaint, please bring a copy of the results, if possible. For example, if you're coming in for back pain and had an MRI or x-ray done, please bring a copy with you so that we may review the results.
When You Arrive
Please arrive on-time for your appointment. We ask that if you are going to be late that you simply call or text the office to let us know. You will need to fill out some paperwork when you arrive, so you may wish to arrive early if you want to be seen at your scheduled time. If you would like to complete the required forms prior to arriving at the office please call and we will email the forms to you.
Payment for your first visit will be required prior to being seen. Remember, we are primarily a cash-pay doctor's office. For patients who have regular Medicare, a claim will be submitted to Medicare to pay for your visit. However, you will be responsible for any co-payments when you arrive. Patients with any other insurance policy, including Medicare Advantage plans, will be charged $99 when you arrive. Your insurance company may reimburse you for the full cost or even a portion of the cost of your visit.
If you have any other questions, please read the FAQ, or give us a call.
