Many people are unsure on how to prepare for their visit to see their prosthetist or orthotist. Here are some suggestions that will make your visit more efficient.

  • Be on time for your appointment
  • On your first visit, bring your prescription from the referring physician
  • Bring all of your current insurance, Medicare, Medicaid cards
  • Let us know if your insurance, address, or phone number has changed
  • Be prepared to discuss your personal health history and current conditions
  • Be prepared to discuss your personal goals and activities
  • Bring a family member or friend. It is easy to forget much of what was discussed during an
    office visit
  • Don’t be embarrassed to ask your prosthetist/orthotist to explain medical words in simple terms
    until you are sure you understand
  • Bring a pair of shorts if we are measuring or fitting a device to your leg
  • Bring a pair of lace up or Velcro shoes
  • Please turn off your cell phone
  • Before your appointment, make a list of any questions that you want to ask your
    prosthetist/orthotist
  • If you are coming for an adjustment, make sure you can describe where you are experiencing the
    problem or irritation
  • Make sure you understand what you are supposed to do at home after being fit with a device:
    gradually increasing the wear schedule, checking your skin for signs of irritation, how to remove
    the device, etc.
