Prepare for your visit by filling out these forms ahead of your appointment and bring them with you. This will help us provide you with an efficient visit. Thank you!
You will receive a call from our office one to two business days prior to your appointment to confirm the date and time. During the phone confirmation we will review the status of any records needed, your insurance status and required physician referrals.
If you don’t hear from us, please call before leaving home. Due to the nature of our physicians’ surgeries (they are often called to emergency cases), delays are possible.
We ask that you please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Please bring the following items with you to your visit:
Your current health insurance information
Your current Photo ID
Any medications you are currently taking in their original containers or in a list with dosages and times
Please note: In order to provide efficient care for all of our patients, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment if you do not arrive at least 30 minutes early.
It’s very important that you request your prescription refills during normal business hours before 4 p.m. Monday-Friday. Prescriptions will not be refilled on weekends or holidays.
You can request a refill on the MyCovenantHealth Patient Portal or by calling your pharmacy.
Insurers often require a physician referral prior to your visit to East Tennessee Cardiovascular Surgery Group. As a courtesy to our patients, we will attempt to contact your primary care physician and request a referral. However, it is your responsibility to confirm that a referral has been obtained before you are seen by our providers.
If a test or procedure is ordered by a East Tennessee Cardiovascular Surgery Group provider, our staff will obtain a necessary precertification on your behalf. Precertification for any tests or procedures ordered by your own primary care physician is the responsibility of your primary care provider’s office.
