Care and Treatment

Health Information

These areas have been reviewed by our group and we can recommend these as excellent resources for health information. As with all health related information, the content can change rapidly and we strongly encourage you to discuss all health matters and concerns with your physician before embarking on new diagnostic or treatment strategies.

For Patients

PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

  • Let us know what you want to cover with your doctor when you make your appointment
  • Complete and print the adult or pediatric medical history forms
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to appointment to complete pre-visit registration

DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT

  • Tell your doctor why you are here and what your concerns are
  • We will take your medical history, perform a physical exam, and any necessary lab tests
  • Feel free to ask any questions. We will explain what our understanding of your problem is, what treatment we recommend, and why.
  • Arrange for any follow-ups, either by phone or return visit

EMERGENCY CARE

Emergency room visits outside clinic hours no longer require pre-authorization by your doctor, by California State Law. Make sure you inform your physician within 24 hours following your visit.

Be aware of your health plan limitations - unless you require 911 emergency transport, some health plans require you to obtain all after-hours emergency care at Stanford ER if you have a primary care doctor at Stanford.

A physician is on-call after hours to coordinate any emergency care needs which arise after-hours and can be reached at the 24 hour number: 650-498-9000.
