I’m an established patient, what do I need to bring to my appointment?
Thank you for choosing to continue your care with Elite Women’s Health! Prior to your visit you will receive an email and/or text message with a secure patient registration link. If you have not received this email and/or text, please give us a call prior to your appointment. For every visit, please be sure and bring:

Medical records if following up from another facility or hospital
Elite Women’s Health is happy to accommodate all medical records requests. In order to process your request, please complete and return the Medical Records Release Form to the front desk and allow up to 14 days for records to be sent.

What is your process for FMLA/Short Term Disability paperwork?
Elite Women’s Health charges a $25 fee for all FMLA or short term disability form processing. Please allow 1-2 weeks for forms to be processed. Fee must be paid upon completion or when forms are given to the front desk. Thank you for your understanding.
We ask that you provide a 24-48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment. A last-minute cancellation or missed appointment will not only delay your care but also prevents us from rescheduling another patient who could have been seen at that time.
Please be aware that we charge $25 for each appointment that is missed or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice.
What is your policy if I’m running late for my appointment?
We respect the time of all our patients, and our providers strive to stay on schedule and see patients as close to their scheduled appointment time as possible. If you are delayed and arrive late for your appointment, every effort will be made to see you the same day. We ask that if you are running late, please give the office a courtesy call to let the front desk know. Unfortunately, if you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
What is your “no show” or missed appointment policy?
We make every effort to remind you of your scheduled appointment via text message and/or email, so please be sure that we have your correct cell phone and/or email address on file so you do not miss the reminder messages. Please note that we do not call for appointment reminders.
Our office requires a 24-hour notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. At Elite Women’s Health, we make every effort to schedule your appointment in a timely fashion, while ensuring the appointment length allows time for you to discuss your medical concerns with your provider. A last-minute cancellation or missed appointment will not only delay your care but also prevents us from rescheduling another patient who could have been seen at that time.
We do understand that sometimes unforeseen emergency situations arise; however, we ask that you provide us with the courtesy of canceling or rescheduling your appointment at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
Please be aware that we charge $25 for each appointment that is missed or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice. After three last-minute rescheduled or missed appointments we may choose to discontinue your care.
