For Patients


  • 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


  • 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 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.
