What should I expect during my first appointment, and what should I bring?
Your first appointment will include a full history evaluation. Imaging may be needed to support the diagnosis or determine next steps in your treatment plan. Depending on your needs, our nursing team may review presurgical recommendations or teach you how to care for a cast, brace or splint.
Appointment times vary depending on your symptoms or condition. Most initial appointments take at least 30 minutes.
Bring any imaging or medical records from non-Mayo Clinic Health System facilities. Visit our Medical Record Forms page to grant permission for others to access your protected health information or request a change to your health record.
What are my payment options and do you offer financial assistance?

We serve patients in difficult financial circumstances and offer financial assistance to those who have an established need to receive medically necessary services. Learn more about financial assistance options.
