Save Time During Your Appointment at UGCSF with Our Pre-Visit Checklist

dreamstime_s_29912090Providing the best possible patient experience is a top priority for Dr. Wittenberg and the team at UGCSF. We realize that your time is incredibly important and that by visiting our office you’re taken away from your normal responsibilities and routine.

In order to save time during your next appointment with UGCSF, we recommend that patients review our pre-visit checklist below. This checklist was designed in order to cut down on any of the stressful waiting or back-and-forth that patients face when they visit a physician.

  1. Print and fill out forms prior to your appointment.

New and returning patients should print and fill out all appropriate forms before their visit to UGCSF. Doing so is one of the most effective ways you can save time during your visit as you will not need to delay your appointment by filling out forms and looking up information in the waiting room. Forms can be returned during check-in at the front desk on the day of your appointment or via fax to 415-395-9897.

  1. Update your information.

A great way to save time is to let UGCSF know ahead of time if any of your personal or medical information has changed. This can include a change of address, an updated relationship status, a change in medications and more. Updating your information is easy: just login to the FollowMyHealth patient portal and you can update your profile. A member of our staff will contact you if additional information is needed.

  1. Do your research.

Coming to an appointment prepared with your questions and concerns is a great way to make sure topics you’d like to address or discuss are covered in a timely manner. It’s common for patients who are new to urogynecology to have more questions than they would during a visit to their general practitioner, so having these questions prepared in advance will ensure that your visit is thorough and timely.

We recommend that new and returning patients visit our blog and check out our video gallery for detailed, helpful information on specific gynecological and urogynecological conditions and treatments, such as pelvic prolapse, interstitial cystitis, UTIs, hysterectomies, incontinence, pelvic reconstruction, abnormal pap smears, and heavy menstrual bleeding.
