As a patient of CIC Associates you have the responsibilities to:
Cancellation of Appointments
If you cannot keep an appointment, reasonable notice should be given to the office to cancel the appointment. Too frequently we are notified of a cancellation after the appointment time has passed, or what is worse, no notice is given whatsoever. This courtesy on your part, makes it possible to give an appointment to another patient who needs to see the doctor.
Why All the Questions?
You will be asked information that is necessary for the provision of your care.These questions are a necessary part of the examination. Your address and phone number are needed in case the doctor writes prescriptions for you. Information concerning your occupation, age and other statistics is important for it has a bearing upon your health and physical status and if you have any insurance claims made by this office, the information is needed on the forms. This information will be regularly updated.
What Goes On Here?
You may be disturbed to see patients called in ahead of you, although you have waited longer than they did. These are patients whom the nurse takes care of under the doctor's supervision. They may be getting blood pressure checks, laboratory examination, injections or x-rays.
Should I Come In Too?
If the patient is an adult, it is best if he or she comes into the treatment room alone. Perfect freedom in doctor-patient relationship is best attained when the patient can speak in privacy with the physician. However, this is a decision that is left up to the parties concerned.
