Prior to arriving for your ENT doctor’s appointment
BergerHenry ENT wants to do everything we can to make your experience with us as comfortable, convenient, and efficient as possible. So, we have provided detailed information to help you prepare for your initial visit and what to expect once you arrive.
Prior to Arriving for Your ENT Appointment
Patient Forms and Insurance
If you book an appointment online, we will email you patient forms to complete in the comfort of your home. If you decide to complete your forms in the office, please arrive a few minutes before your appointment time. Please be sure to bring your insurance card.
In order to properly treat your symptoms, we would like to know if you are taking prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medications. You can bring them with you to your appointment, take pictures of the front/back with your cell phone, or jot down the medication names, dosages, and frequencies.
What to Expect at Your Initial ENT Appointment
Medical History and Symptoms
Once you’re checked in, you’ll meet with one of our certified ENT doctors in a private exam room. Your ENT doctor will ask about your medical history and symptoms. Next, a physical exam will be performed. Special instruments may be used to gently take a look inside your nasal passages and/or ears. The exam does not hurt.
Bring a Prepared List of Questions
We welcome any and all questions that you may have. Your visit will be conversational so we recommend writing down your questions prior to your appointment so nothing is overlooked or forgotten.
Your initial exam will give your ENT doctor the information needed to determine if a treatment plan is required. It’s possible that additional testing and/or medications could be recommended to treat your symptoms.
If Additional Testing Is Needed
Depending on your symptoms and the results of the initial exam, your ENT doctor may recommend additional testing with a nasal endoscope. It would be gently inserted into your nostrils in order for your ENT doctor to see further into your sinuses to assess inflammation or other possible abnormalities.
BergerHenry ENT also offers hearing tests which will help your ENT doctor determine if further treatment for hearing loss is needed.
