Appointment Checklist

  1. Arrive 15 minutes early

Arriving early allows you to complete any necessary paperwork prior to your appointment time. This may include updating your insurance or demographic information, such as your address or phone number, and completing any physical or history forms needed for your visit.

  1. Bring a photo ID

Bringing your photo ID to each appointment allows our receptionists to verify your identity and confirm it matches the information in our system, providing increased security of your health information.

  1. Bring your Insurance cards

Bringing your insurance cards to every appointment assists us in properly submitting your claim to your insurance company and allows for timely payments of your claims.

Note: Payment for all co-payments and elective cosmetic procedures is required at the time of service. 

  1. Bring your medications or a current medication list

Some medications can be dangerous when taken with other medications. By bringing your medications or current medication list to your appointment, your doctor is able to see what medications you are taking, determine why you are taking them, and discuss the potential side effects and possible interactions. This includes any over the counter medicines such as, herbal supplements, vitamins, and weight control products.

  1. Bring any paperwork that was mailed to you for your appointment

Sometimes our office may mail you forms to be completed before your scheduled appointment. Please fill those out to the best of your ability and bring them with you to your appointment.

At Grand River Medical Group we want to ensure you receive the best care possible. By arriving early and bringing these items we can better assist you with your overall healthcare experience. See you soon!
