New Patients

Thank you for consulting the Arthritis Treatment Center about your musculoskeletal problems.  You should receive a packet of information and forms in the mail for your completion prior to your scheduled appointment.  Your completion of these forms is very important in allowing us to gather the information we need to understand your medical history as well as your current musculoskeletal problems.  For your convenience, you can also complete these forms online, print them out and bring them with you to your next visit.

Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheuled appointment time.  If you are unable to keep this appointment, please call our office as soon as possible (413) 734-5661.

Any records about your condition from other physicians are very important and we greatly appreciate you bringing those with you to your visit.  Additionally we request that you:

  • Bring actual Xray films that pertain to your visit, as well as a copy of the Xray report
  • Bring copies of relevant test results, including CT scan, MRI, Bone Density, other imaging studies and recent laboratory tests
  • Bring all of your prescription and over-the-counter medications
  • Bring any insurance forms you need completed
  • Complete and bring with you the patient questionnaire forms you received

If you need a referral for insurance purposes (such as Mass Health or HMO plans), please make sure you have this BEFORE your appointment.  Failing to make these arrangements with your primary doctor's office could create delays during your visit and your appointment may have to be rescheduled.

We do not accept Workman's Compensation or Accident Insurance.  If the cost of treating your condition might be covered under one of these plans, you will need to speak with our business office before your appointment.

For your convenience, you can access patient forms, print them out and bring them with you to your next visit.  Click here... for more information.
