Office Policies

This information will be helpful for your first visit to Denver Arthritis Clinic as you familiarize yourself with our office procedures.

If you are a new patient to our practice, please visit our eHealth Portal and either fill out online or download and complete our new patient form to bring with you to your first appointment.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time. If you need to cancel an appointment, please call 48 hours before, if possible. Cancellations should be made no later than 24 hours prior to your appointment or you will be billed.

If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.

Please give the receptionist your name when you arrive. Your doctor will take your medical history and perform a physical examination concentrating on your muscles, bones and joints. He/She will discuss his/her thoughts about your problem and its treatment.

Should you need X-ray studies and/or laboratory studies, you may have them done at our facility. All test results will be given to you at the time of your return appointment. Should your tests need attention prior to your return, we will contact you.

For your first office visit, you will need to bring the following:

  • All of your medications
  • Copies of any laboratory, X-ray reports, original films or hospital reports done in the last year
  • All original insurance cards

If we participate in your insurance plan, we will submit claims for you. All referrals and co-pays are due at the time of your visit. If you do not have your co-pay or referral, your appointment will need to be rescheduled. If we do not participate in your insurance plan, payment is expected at the time of service. We will submit covered laboratory and X-ray services to your insurance company for you. Any services deemed non-covered or deductibles are your responsibility. We will expect payment from you within 30 days.

Though we may participate or are in-network with your insurance, there is no guarantee their payment will be accepted as payment in full. Some plans, depending on the procedures billed, may have co-insurance and/or deductibles for which the patient is responsible.
