Notes for your sports medicine appointment
If you have had any previous imaging performed, such as X-rays, a CT scan or MRI, please bring a disc with the images on it and a copy of the imaging report with you to your clinic visit. Also, if your child had prior treatment to the same joint, such as physical therapy or surgery, please get the most recent therapy note or have the surgeon/hospital send a copy of the operative report to us. This will help us provide each child with the best treatment!
