Your first visit to Surgical Care Specialists establishes a vital foundation for our relationship. Prior to and during this visit, we will obtain important background information. To help understand what to expect, please read through the following instructions, including maps and directions, practice hours, payment policies, and more.
To best facilitate getting the correct patient to the correct surgeon for your needs we ask that you call the office to speak to one of our team to make your appointment. If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment or will be delayed, please let us know, and we will work to accommodate the changes in your schedule. In order to be considered other patients, charges may be incurred for appointments canceled less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.
Your First Visit
When you schedule your appointment with our practice, we ask for basic information including your email address. The email address allows us to arrange access for you to our secure patient portal. You will receive an email with a login and temporary password and can then complete many of our registration and history forms, request or change appointments, update demographics, and have access to visit details. If you prefer not to complete registration on the portal in advance of your visit, please arrive in the office at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time of your appointment. Our physicians are able to view any prior testing that you had performed in the Jefferson Health System, except the Einstein hospitals which are not yet digitally integrated. If you had any testing at Einstein or any other institution, it is essential to mail or drop off the CD of your images no later than 3 days prior to your visit.
