Patient Visits

Office Visit

We will try to expedite your office visit and avoid delays. To do so, we ask that you bring several items to your first visit:

  • All old records (especially operative reports), x-rays, CT scans, MRI’s
  • Always bring the actual films if available (as opposed to the reports)
  • Contact information (full address) of referring physician and primary care doctor
  • Shoulder problem – tank top or jog bra
  • Elbow problem – short sleeve shirt

For a new patient’s initial visit, Dr. Simovitch will require new or at least recent x-rays of the affected extremity. Please be aware that new patients or those who require x-rays may be asked to come in early to obtain these important studies.

Medical Records/Forms

It is best for you to request your medical records (including office notes, operative reports, laboratory data, and intra-operative pictures) in advance of your initial visit and hand carry them with you as opposed to having them mailed to us.

In order to expedite your visit, we encourage you to complete and print out your new patient paperwork, which can be accessed on the Forms page. Please present the completed paperwork upon checking in at the front desk.

Insurance

Please bring a copy of your insurance card with you. If you are out of our network, we will make every effort to work with you and facilitate your care with us. We also accept out of network benefits and self-pay. We are dedicated to helping the patients of South Florida receive exemplary care.

Surgery

Inpatient surgeries can be done at Good Samaritan Hospital, Palm Beach Gardens Hospital and Jupiter Medical Center while outpatient surgeries are done at the Northpoint Surgery & Laser Center (West Palm Beach) or the Jupiter Outpatient Surgery Center. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs when scheduling a surgery.

Please do NOT eat or drink anything after midnight on the night before your surgery. Also, if you are having shoulder surgery, do not place deodorant on the morning of your surgery.

Questions

Questions regarding appointments or procedures can be directed to Dr. Simovitch’s medical assistant, Diana at (561) 694-7776, ext. 1311.

Patient care matters can be emailed if the matter is non-urgent at dianal@pboi.com.
