Most often you will be speaking with an appointment scheduler who you will be verbally communicating most of the required information such as your personal demographic information, your primary care physician, insurance information and reason for your appointment.
We will be happy to retrieve any document from your past medical history such as Echocardiogram, EKG, Cardiac Catheterization that will help your Cardiologist better assess your condition or concern at your visit, whether the records are from a past hospital stay, an emergency visit, or records from your Primary Care Physician. This will require you to sign a Release of Medical Records form. Please complete the form and send to the office of your scheduled appointment.
If your medical insurance requires a referral, you will need to get in touch with your Primary Care Physician to let them know when your scheduled appointment is and ask them to enter a referral for you. You will need our NPI number for many of the insurances. If you are making an appointment for the CCP office the NPI number is 164927386.
Thank you in advance,
