Medical Tourism - Needed Information

Q: If I am traveling to see you, what information do you need to accept me as your patient?

A: I will need to see 2 main items prior to being able to accept you as a patient:

  1. Imaging – xrays, minimum 2 views (pelvis & lateral views are preferred for hips; ap, lateral & sunrise views are preferred for knees). Recent MRIs will be necessary for arthroscopic procedures only.
  2. Most recent medical records (history & physical)

You should establish a rapport with my staff prior to your visit. They will help you get any further necessary items to make your trip as smooth as possible.
