how to prepare for your visit
All routine gynecological appointments are performed by Board Certified Physicians and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners.
What you should know
Please bring your medical records with you if you have a copy of these. We advise our patients to create a patient account prior to your visit and to complete your medical profile in advance. Prior to your visit, it’s important to also know what your insurance policy entails.
We are often asked if you need to obtain a copy of your medical record? If you do not have any prior issues that you were treated for or any test results that you would like us to see, it is usually not necessary to obtain records. If you have had abnormal test results in the past, or any history with gynecological issues, please arrange to have your medical records forwarded to our office BEFORE your first visit, but only after you have made an appointment. Call us with any questions regarding transfer of your medical records.
Complete Your Medical Profile In Advance of Your Visit
Amy Brenner MD & Associates are committed to offering the very latest in technology, both in medical care and in managing patient information to ensure privacy, security, and ease of use. We use a secure online EMR (electronic medical record), that allows patients to complete paperwork in the comfort of your own home before coming to the office.
create a patient account
(This is a complimentary secure feature that will allow you to update information, access your medical records, and communicate with our providers) ideally 3 days before your office appointment. We will email you a history form to print out and complete, please bring the completed form to your visit. If you are unable to take advantage of this option, please come to the office 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you can enter your medical history and be ready to be seen at your appointment time. BE SURE TO BRING YOUR PHOTO ID AND INSURANCE CARD WITH YOU!
Know your Insurance Policy
Know Your Insurance Policy: Amy Brenner MD & Associates are very knowledgeable of the most common insurance plans. With that being said, it is not feasible for our staff to know your specific plan inside and out. It is up to you to know your co-pays, deductible, and what kind of visits are covered. If in doubt, call your insurance carrier before making an appointment.
You are expected to pay your co-pays and/or deductibles at time of service. If we are unable to verify your benefits, a deposit will be charged for that visit that will be reimbursed at such time that we receive payment from your insurance carrier. This is why it is important to be informed on your insurance benefits prior to making your appointment.
