Thank you for selecting Arthritis Centers of Texas for your medical treatment. We know that you have a choice
when deciding where to obtain your health care, and we appreciate that you chose Arthritis Centers of Texas.
Under the “Patient Forms” section of this website, you will find printable versions of our Patient Registration, Patient History, Financial Policy and Billing Procedures, Medication List , Provider Contact List, and FOCUS Health Assessment Questionnaire . Please print and complete each of these forms and bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Please have these forms completed when you arrive in the office. Doing so will reduce your waiting time and help avoid unnecessary confusion.
Your first appointment will last approximately one hour. Additional time may be required if lab and/or x-rays are ordered. Please take these time requirements into account when planning your day around your appointment.
Our staff will call several days in advance to remind you of the appointment and to confirm that you will be able to make
the appointment. It is vital that you confirm your appointment by noon the day prior to your appointment. You
may call to confirm your appointment by dialing 214-580-3630 . Your call will go directly to our Appointment
Desk, without being routed through a “phone tree.” You may also use this number to ask questions about your appointment or to
reschedule your appointment if necessary. Appointments that are not confirmed by noon on the day prior to the
appointment may be cancelled in order to allow access to that time-slot by another patient. Unfortunately, an
unused appointment time-slot is time that is lost and cannot be recovered. Therefore, unconfirmed appointment time-slots
may be offered to patients that have an urgent need to see a healthcare practitioner. In addition, if you do not keep your
appointment, and you do not call to reschedule prior to the day of your appointment, you may be charged a missed appointment fee.
In order to conduct a thorough examination on your first visit, we will need copies of your recent medical records from your other
physician(s). This includes labs, x-rays, MRI's, and/or other information that you feel is important to your care. Please
contact your healthcare provider(s) to obtain copies well in advance of your appointment. You may bring these with you to
your appointment, or have them faxed to 214-826-0605 to the attention of Medical Records.
