Core Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has four well respected physicians. Athletic injuries and on-the-job accidents causing minor or severe injury are treated expertly at CORE in the office or in a hospital. Our physicians review all possible non-surgical treatment options with the patient and work closely with physical therapists and trainers in-house to get the athletic back on the playing field or the worker back to work. If surgical intervention is needed then the latest techniques and facilities are available at four hospitals in the western suburbs of Chicago.
Please be familiar with this checklist before your office visit.
What To Wear
Patients having an examination of the Hips or Knees:
Please bring or wear shorts (without metal) for X-rays and examination.
Patients having an examination of the Shoulder or Back:
Please wear a tank top under shirt.
What To Bring
If you have had an X-ray or MRI, please bring the CD or films. This is very important! X-rays taken at Alexian Brothers, St. Alexius or Good Shephard can be viewed online, but studies taken elsewhere need to be brought in at time of appointment in order to prevent rescheduling of appointments.
Any patient less than 18 years of age must bring an adult who is older than 18 years of age and is either a legal guardian or a letter by the legal guardian authorizing treatment and also a copy of the parent’s driver license.
Please bring your medication and past medical history list with you to your next appointment.
Please fill out the following two forms before your appointment.
EMR (Patient Health History)– CO – provided through Exscribe
If you are a new patient or have not been seen in our office since January 23, 2012, please fill out the new patient form. This should take you about 20 minutes to complete. This information will automatically be sent to our system once submitted so you do not need to print it out.
