Appointments

 Please call our office between the hours of  8:30AM and 5:00PM to schedule, cancel, reschedule or confirm an appointment. We schedule patient appointments between 8:00AM and 5:00PM Monday through Friday.

Many insurance plans require a referral from your primary care physician prior to approving specialty care. Please be sure that you are eligible for care prior to scheduling an appointment. This referral  policy applies to x-rays and any other procedures that require prior approval by the insurance provider. Comprehensive Orthopaedics advises potential clients to check with their primary care physician or insurance carrier for further information.

Late Policy

If you arrive late for an appointment you may not be seen that day. “Squeezing” someone in only serves to shortchange the patient and the doctor, and it delays patients who arrive on time. We work hard to honor appointment times and respect patients’ schedules. For this reason, patients who come late are generally rescheduled. Patients who do not call and do not show up for appointments are charged a $25 “No-Show” fee.  Patients who "No-Show" three (3) or more times in a 24 month period, may be dismissed from the practice thus they will be denied any future appointments.

Workers Compensation

You must provide all appointment billing information and have authorization from your carrier prior to treatment. If you do not have authorization, we will be more than willing to treat you however we will need your insurance information and may bill your insurance until authorization is acquired.  If you have any questions please call our billing office at 203.265.3280.
