Prepare for your visit
In order to prepare for your visit, it is your responsibility to:
- Obtain a referral from your primary care physician. If your insurance requires a referral, please bring it with you or arrange to have your physician’s office send or fax it to (603) 881-3739 in advance of your appointment. Without your referral, you will need to sign a waiver for your visit and will be responsible for charges not covered by your insurance.
- Bring your insurance card(s) to your appointment.
- Bring your insurance copayment which is due at the time of service. For your convenience, we accept VISA, MasterCard, Amex, Check or Cash.
- Obtain pertinent medical records, x-rays, MRIs, or scans previously completed for this condition.
- Complete the Patient History Form and bring it to your appointment.
- Bring a list of questions for your provider.
- Bring a list of your current medications.
ALL CO-PAYMENTS MUST BE PAID AT THE TIME OF SERVICE.
We ask that you anticipate any necessary drug refills and call 603-883-0091 in advance, as requests for prescription refills will only be taken during office hours before 3:00 p.m. We also require a 48 hour notice for your prescription refill and cannot acknowledge your call on weekends, holidays or on-call nights.
X-rays are an important diagnostic tool for your physician. As a convenience to our patients, NHOC has a fully equipped x-ray department. If x-rays have previously been taken, we request that you bring these along for your visit. These will be helpful to your physician and may eliminate the need for additional films. Simply request these ahead of time and pick them up at the doctor’s office or hospital where they were taken.
