What To Bring
Please bring photo identification, insurance cards and co-pays to your first visit. If possible, please bring any lab results, x-rays and prescriptions. If you are not being referred by a UAB physician, please bring any other medical information your referring physician has not already sent to our clinic.

Special Instructions
If you are having any pain blocks done, please do not eat or drink anything six hours prior to your procedure. Some procedures may require that you be sedated and will need a driver to escort you home.

Payment Information
Your co-pay is expected at time of service. If you are having a procedure done, your hospital or outpatient co-pay applies. Please check with you insurance provider if you have any questions about your hospital or outpatient co-pay as it is likely to differ from your usual co-pay.

Labs/Tests Results
Since most of the testing is done on-site, results are often immediate and can be evaluated promptly.

Patient Education
Patients are provided with handouts and brochures providing additional information about their condition or a procedure that was performed upon leaving.

Patients with Limitations
Patients visiting UAB Highlands can take advantage of the convenient free parking in front of the building or next door in the 12th Street parking deck.
