Preparing for Your Visit
Please bring with you to your appointment:
- Your current medical insurance identification card
- A list of current medications
- Any medical records from your prior physician if you are a new patient to Community Care Physicians
- If you are a new pediatric patient, please bring your immunization records with you to your appointment if you haven’t already mailed them to our office.
Please bring any pill bottles and list of your current medications with doses to your appointment. This information helps us determine which medications need to be refilled. Most prescription refills can be completed in 48 hours. Prescription refill requests can also be submitted through the patient portal if you are enrolled.
Your healthcare provider may recommend that you be evaluated and treated by sub-specialty physicians if your medical condition warrants.
Schodack Internal Medicine and Pediatrics is part of the multispecialty medical group, Community Care Physicians (CCP). CCP includes a number of excellent sub-specialty physicians, all of which share electronic health records and imaging studies allowing your records to be immediately accessed by the providers administering your care. We are happy to refer you to any of these Community Care specialists when needed or to any appropriate sub-specialist whom you prefer.
Our office will provide notifications to, or request authorization from your health insurer if these are required.
We will provide the consultant with your relevant medical history so that the consultant is informed.
We offer referral processing in 24-48 hours.
If you experience and emergency and need to visit the Emergency Room, your hospital care will be coordinated with an experienced team of specialists in inpatient care who work in close contact with our clinicians and who have access to the important parts of your medical records.
For you, this means personal and efficient care throughout and beyond your hospital stay. Your primary care provider at our office will receive any notes regarding your hospital visit, and will follow up with you for any care that is required.
