For New Patients

Patients are referred to us for many different reasons.

  • You may need a consult or second opinion if you have had an abnormal test result or exam.

  • Your referring doctor wants a second opinion regarding an existing diagnosis. In this case, we will review any testing or imaging you have had done, discuss your symptoms and perform a detailed physical exam. We may also order more testing before sending our assessment to your referring physician.

  • You have an existing diagnosis and your doctor refers you to us to manage your condition. Our team of experienced specialists is equipped to manage your condition.

What do I need to bring?

When you come in for your appointment, please bring any related test results from other physicians. If you have had any imaging done outside of Hartford HealthCare, please bring a copy of them on a disk. You can get copies through the radiology center where you had the tests done. If your testing was done in the Hartford HealthCare system, we can access them through your electronic medical record. Medical records from outside our system can also be faxed to us at 860.827.4187. Please call to confirm that we received the records before coming in for your appointment.

We ask that all new patients fill out the new patient paperwork and bring it to their first appointment. Patients coming in for a consultation should expect to visit with the specialist for approximately one hour. During this time, we may schedule additional imaging or procedures. These details will be discussed when your appointment is scheduled.
