Preparing for an appointment can be frustrating–not to mention trying to arrive on time. We'd love to help. Here's how to be prepared.

Fill out your paperwork.

If it's your first visit, you'll need to complete the new patient packet. To save time, fill them out now and bring them to your appointment.

Arrive 15 minutes early, pretty please.

We'll check your paperwork and get you into your appointment as quickly as we can. (Need directions?)

Bring your ID and insurance card. 

Any government-issued photo ID will work.

Bring your copayment.

Your copayment is due at your appointment. We accept cash, check, and most major credit cards.

Need to Reschedule?

We understand that plans change. So if you need to reschedule your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours' notice. Please call us at 615.233.0200 to change your appointment.

Thank you for taking such good care of me during my recent surgery. I appreciate your care during such a difficult and stressful time. I’m feeling great!

We accept most major medical plans, but it's always good to check with your insurance to make sure we're an in-network provider. If you're covered under a spouse, partner, or parent's plan, please know his or her Social Security Number and date of birth. We'll need both to file with your insurance.

Lab tests

We have an in-house lab technician, so tests are easy to take care of during your appointment. Once we hear back from the lab, we'll call you with the results. 

For your pap smear results, wait 7–10 days, then call Associated Pathologists at 877.728.4837.


To give the best diagnosis, we always see a patient before writing a new prescription. No medications, especially narcotics, are prescribed without a patient exam. If you're running low and need a refill, please call us at least 48 hours before you take your last dose.
