Your Visit

We appreciate the busy lives our patients have competing with maintenance of their health care. We try to accommodate our patients' needs for appointment times and days. Every effort is made to see our patients at their scheduled time, but occasional medical emergencies or obstetrical deliveries may cause delays. We do our best to keep patients from being inconvenienced. We appreciate advance notice of cancellations.

Please take a moment to review your rights and responsibilities.
    Patient's Rights and Responsibilities  ( MS Word |  HTML )

When you come to your first visit and every appointment to Ruth Haskins, MD, Inc., please be sure to bring both your insurance card and your copay with you. We cannot continue with your scheduled visit without both of these items.

Please take time to talk to your insurance benefits advisor (call the 1-800- number on the back of your insurance card) to find out which lab and which imaging facility best suits your insurance plan. We must rely on you to know this!

Payment is required at the time of service for any charges not covered by your insurance. We rely on you to know the limitations of your particular policy. We try to make such payments as convenient as possible by accepting personal checks, Mastercard or Visa. Checks returned for insufficient funds will result in a $25 assessment fee to the patient directly.

There will be a $15.00 administrative fee assessed at the time of reciept for each complicated medical form that requires a physician signature (such as disability requests, FMLA requests and school or occupation physical exam forms).

IF AT ANY TIME YOUR INSURANCE CARRIER OR COVERAGE CHANGES OR YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION CHANGES, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTIFY RUTH HASKINS, MD, INC., OF THESE CHANGES IMMEDIATELY.

SORRY: NEW 'NO CHILDREN' POLICY
I want to make the most of the time you have with me during our medical visit. I want us to focus only on you and your health, with no distractions. Additionally, children under age 12 can carry contagious viral diseases that could infect obstetrical patients they might come in contact with in our waiting area. For these reasons, we ask that you not bring any children to your Ob or Gyn visit unless it is absolutely unavoidable. If it is necessary, children under 3 years old must be restrained in a stroller or car seat.
