Prior to Your Visit

Prior to Your Visit

When scheduling an appointment with one of our surgeons, it’s important that you have the necessary information available. Please click here for a Checklist of Required Patient Information. You may call our office at (310) 373-6864 – Option #2 to schedule or Book Appointment Online.

Once you have your appointment, our goal is to ensure every patient visit to our office is a pleasant and efficient experience. Prior to your visit, please bring the following information with you for your appointment:

Authorization/Referral: If you are enrolled in a managed care plan, your insurance company may require you to obtain a referral or authorization from your primary care physician before your office visit or surgery. If we do not receive your referral in advance of your visit, you will be financially responsible for those services.

Photo Identification: For security purposes, we require you to bring a valid driver’s license or a current/valid photo ID to every appointment.

Insurance Card/Billing Information: ***We are a cashless system*** With COVID-19, cash is not an ideal form of payment when it comes to a safe and hygienic environment.

Be sure to bring your insurance card(s) to each appointment. As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill your insurance company for office visits and surgical procedures. Based on your insurance or plan benefit coverage, it may be necessary to collect deductibles, co-pays, co-insurances and/or a deposit at the time of each visit. Please contact your insurance carrier prior to your visit to obtain complete benefit coverage information. We accept personal checks, debit cards, MasterCard, Visa and American Express. We accept most major insurances.

Bring any relevant medical records for prior treatment for this injury or condition.

Our patients with an upcoming appointment may print the Medical History Form and HIPAA Patient Consent Form and bring the completed forms to your scheduled office visit. Or you can scan/email the completed forms to in advance of your appointment. You may also access your MyHealthRecord via our secure patient portal, which will allow you to provide additional medical history information up to seven days prior to your office visit. After your visit, patients can also access office visit summaries.


We look forward to hearing from you!
