Your Bones. Our Business.
Welcome and Thank You for choosing Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons, P.C. for your orthopedic care. We are pleased to provide online resources for you. From learning more about us to preparing for your appointment, we want you to have the resources and information you need to feel confident about your upcoming visit. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (770) 386-5221.
Preparing for Your Visit
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. This will allow you time to check-in with our office professionals at the front desk. If this is your first visit, you will be guided through the process by our patient registration department.
Please be sure to bring the following items with you:
- Photo ID
- Insurance card
- Detailed list of your medications, including name, dosage, and how often taken
- Related X-rays, MRIs, CT Scans and the associated reports
- Any related doctor’s records or notes about your condition if applicable
- Method of payment for your co-pay or deductible – We accept all major credit cards, cash and checks.
- If you have a referral from your primary care physician or any other medical provider, please provide that documentation to the front desk representative.
Because insurance plans change frequently, please call your insurance carrier prior to your visit to verify that we are included in your network of providers.
During Your Visit
Upon completion of patient check-in and new patient registration, you may relax in our spacious patient reception area. A Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons' medical assistant will escort you to an exam room where they will take vitals and gather important medical information such as allergies, confirming medications and pharmacy information, taking a history of your illness/injury, and other preparations as needed.
For your comfort and convenience, we recommend that you wear loose, comfortable clothing for your appointment. If you are having a lower extremity examined (hip, knee, ankle, etc.) consider wearing shorts or loose fitting pants, such as sweatpants.
You are welcome to have a trusted family member, friend, or caregiver accompany you to your appointment.
