Preparing for Your Appointment
- How long will an office appointment take?
Please allow 1-2 hours for your appointment. However, no two patient visits are exactly the same and your physician will spend as much time as needed to ensure appropriate assessment and understanding of your care. Please bring any pertinent medical records (i.e imaging reports/CDs or prior records from other physicians who have investigated your medical problem) to your appointment.
- Will I only see the doctor that I'm scheduled with?
UCLA is a teaching hospital. Fellows and residents in Orthopaedic programs, nurses, and technicians may assist in your care during your visit. These individuals have special training and skills that make them an important part of our patient care team.
- What should I expect during the visit?
- We will review past x-rays, MRIs, CT's and/or your previous medical records for past treatment.
- We may obtain new x-rays at the time of the visit, if indicated.
- We may order new radiographic imaging or MRIs, if indicated.
- We may consider conservative treatment or procedures for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
