Thank you for choosing Dayton Gastroenterology. When you first visit our office, there are some routine steps and forms we will walk you through to set you up for the best care with our knowledgeable and compassionate staff.
You will receive registration information prior to your first appointment at Dayton Gastro. This includes basic patient information and a health history questionnaire. If you are unable to complete this information prior to your appointment, you will be asked to complete it when you arrive for your consultation. Completing the questionnaires can take approximately 15 minutes, so please be sure to arrive a little early to your appointment.
- When you arrive to consultation, the receptionist will verify that Dayton Gastro has the correct demographic data, such as your current address and contact information.
- Please bring your insurance cards with you, as the receptionist will also review your current insurance information.
- The receptionist will check we received authorization for the visit if you have HMO insurance with that requirement.
- This will also be the time you fill out the registration information if it was not previously completed.
Your consultation will consist of discussing your symptoms, answering questions your doctor has based on your referral paperwork and your questions, and a focused physical examination.
All information you provide is vital in order for the doctor to develop a treatment plan and diagnosis that is individual to you. At the end of the consultation, the doctor will discuss with you his/her assessment of your digestive disorder and what tests may be needed.
If a procedure is needed, it will most likely be scheduled on a separate day. It is not necessary to fast or prep for your office visit unless we have specifically instructed you to do so.
