Patients Should Not Be Required to Wait

Often times there is a delay in the transition of medical care. This delay is due in part to inefficient communication and operation by other medical office/hospital staff members outside of the control of MDC-Atlanta, and patients should not be held accountable for such actions. The delay in medical care transition can be potentially detrimental to patient care.

Our Policy at MDC-Atlanta regarding  New Patient Review/Medical Care Evaluation is REVISED to reflect the following:

1) Patient must show valid identification card and/or document.

2) Patient must be 21 years or older for general medical care.

3) Patient must seek due diligence in obtaining medical records from previous health care provider and/or hospital as requested

4) Patient must complete registration and other appropriate agreement forms for medical care by MDC-Atlanta

5) Patient must abide by rules and practice policy as established by MDC-Atlanta

6) Patient must communicate directly with our practice in a timely fashion regarding medical office/home visits and/or any other medical emergency 24/7.

7) Patient must accept our physician as apart of their overall medical management team.
