Your Visit

 

Before your visit

Please call us prior to your visit at (615) 936-2467 to make sure:

  • We have your medical records from your referring doctor.
  • We have an insurance referral on file, if needed.
  • An interpreter is scheduled for your visit, if needed.

During your visit

To help us honor your appointment time, please arrive at least 15 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment time to take care of insurance and registration information.

Please bring the following items with you to the initial visit:

  • All medical records from your referring provider.
  • Your child's current medicines.
  • Co-payment required by your insurance company.
  • Insurance referral, if needed.
  • A toy or favorite book to entertain your child while you wait.

After your visit

The opinions of the consulting physician will be discussed with the family and the referring provider. While the Vanderbilt physicians may want to see the patient for follow-up visits, the referring medical provider will remain the patient’s primary health care provider.

In many cases, the Vanderbilt consulting physician will work with your provider and develop a plan to assist with and manage your child’s medical needs. Most medicine refills should be done through your primary care provider's office.
