What to Bring with You
When you come to your appointment, please bring your insurance card, all prescription and over-the-counter medications that you are currently taking (or a list of these medications), any x-rays, lab results, or other medical information that your referring physician has not already sent to our clinic.
We will mail a medical history form and incontinence assessment questionnaires to you before your visit. Please complete them and bring them with you to your visit. Other instructions will be provided in advance.
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. 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 through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (205) 801-9910.
Patients with Limitations
Patients visiting the Kirklin Clinic may take advantage of convenient parking in the deck adjacent to the clinic. Located at 2100 6th Avenue South, the parking deck is connected to the 2nd floor of the Kirklin Clinic by a weatherproof sky bridge. High-top van access is restricted to the 1st floor of the clinic parking deck. Therefore, patients arriving in high-top vans and requiring wheelchair assistance should be dropped off at the front door of the clinic before the driver parks the vehicle. Valet parking is available on Level 2 of the deck; wheelchairs and additional assistance are located here as well.
