What to Bring with You
When you come to your appointment, please bring your insurance card, a list of any prescription or over the counter medications that you are currently taking (including dosage amount), and any pertinent medical records/medical information (including mammography films, biopsy reports, clinic notes, etc.) that have not already been sent to our office by your referring physician. Please be sure to hand carry all mammography films.
There are two phases to your visit with us. The first phase includes a review of your original mammography films. This will take place in the Radiology Clinic on the 3rd floor of The Kirklin Clinic. Following this review, you will proceed to the Breast Center for a consultation with your physician.
When you arrive at The Kirklin Clinic, please check in at the front desk of the Breast Center so that we know that you have arrived. At this time you will be given registration paperwork to complete while you wait for your review in Radiology.
Some insurance providers may require a referral or pre-certification before seeing a specialist of this nature. Please be sure to bring a copy of this referral or pre-certification with you for insurance/billing purposes. If you are unsure of what your insurance company requires, please contact them in advance of your appointment and they will be happy to answer any of your questions. If we will be filing insurance for your visit, please present your insurance card at the time of registration. Your co-pay is expected at the time of your visit; however, our financial counselors are available to discuss any problems or special circumstances. Our financial counselors may be reached Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. at (205) 801-9910.
