New Patient Responsibilities

For my patients: Reminder list of important things to tell Dr. Fass for coding, documentation, assessment and treatment requirements at each visit (you can skip over items that don’t apply. NB: anything that you do NOT mention I will document as not applicable). For the remaining time we can discuss whatever you would like.

  1. Are there medication changes made by someone else or yourself?
  2. Are there medication changes you want me to make today and why?
  3. Do you need any refills of medication today?

  5. What diagnosis and problems do you want to discuss?
