information & prescription.

Your First Visit
When you arrive
Please have a current copy of your insurance information with you. We’ll ask you to fill out some forms while we make a copy of your insurance or Medicaid/Medicare information. We recommend arriving a few minutes early, so you have some extra time to fill out the necessary information.
Your initial evaluation
During the first visit, your practitioner will evaluate your condition and ask you some questions about your need for an orthotic or prosthetic device. The more information you can give your practitioner the better we will be able to meet your personal needs.
Measuring & Casting
Following the evaluation, the practitioner may measure and/or cast you for your device. Measurement can be taken with different devices such as a tape measure, M-L gauge, calipers, etc. Casting your limb or torso can be done using thin fiberglass material or plaster. Both are removed when dry and easily cleaned from skin with soap and water. After measuring and/or casting is completed, then you will be instructed to make a return appointment for your fitting before leaving our office.

Please fill out a survey to let us know how satisfied you were with your visit.
How the results are used.
Knowing how our patient’s feel about the level of care we provide is critical. This survey allows us to provide better care for our patients. It helps us…
• Understand what’s important to patients
• Become more responsive to patient needs
• Identify issues early and take action
• Improve patient outcomes
• Meet professional accreditation standards and requirements
By providing direct feedback through these surveys, you can better inform your clinicians about your current situation and how they can improve the care process for you and other patients.
In addition, the data helps us to quantify how specific treatment protocols impact overall patient outcomes. Your input could have a dramatic impact on how the care process is improved for countless other patients such as yourself.
