Referring Physicians and Staff
Please be prepared to give the following information when scheduling an exam:
- Social Security number
- Date of birth
- Exam and diagnosis
- Name of referring physician
- Insurance carrier name
- Insurance carrier subscriber name
When scheduling an appointment, our staff will advise you to remind your patients to bring any necessary paperwork with them including their Insurance I.D. card and Photo I.D.
We would ask you to give us a 24 hour notice if an appointment must be canceled or rescheduled and we will be happy to accommodate your patient's needs. The radioactive injection involved in the procedure is prepared specifically for the patient and must be discarded if unused.
PLEASE NOTE— We require an authorization for all PET/CT scans for most insurance carriers before the exam can be rendered. It is important for scheduling staff to verify your patient's insurance coverage and obtain the authorization before the appointment is scheduled with our staff. We are more than happy to assist in this process.
We welcome patients to give us a call if they have specific questions regarding the exam they will be receiving. We would also ask that all patients bring any available comparative CDs. Patients can expect to receive a call from us 1-2 days before their test to receive instructions and preparations. You may also print out a copy of the instructions here .
