Your First Visit To Our New York Orthopedic Surgery Clinic

What you need to know before meeting with one of our NYC orthopedic doctors

First impressions matter at Island Musculoskeletal Care (IMC Bone Doc). That’s why we want to make sure your first visit with one of our board-certified, New York orthopedic surgeons exceeds your expectations. We have over 100 years of combined medical experience and can put our knowledge to work for you.

When you meet for the first time with one of our doctors, you’ll notice the difference right away. Many of our highly-skilled, New York orthopedic surgeons are available on short notice – sometimes even the same day. Since we have seven offices in the greater New York City and Long Island area, we can often meet with you close to your home. Best of all, you can often receive all your medical care at one of our convenient locations, which includes our offices in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island.

What to bring to your first meeting with us

When you come for your appointment, please remember to obtain and bring the following items to your first visit:

  • Driver's license or a valid ID
  • Insurance information
  • Referral letter (if required)
  • Reports, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans etc. and any other relevant information
  • List of medications (if any)

If you do not have any of these documents or have any questions, simply schedule an appointment with us. We want to meet with you. What matters most is making sure you get the medical care you need to get your life back on track. You can learn more on our patient resources page.

During your first appointment, we will take the time to evaluate you and find out exactly what’s wrong with you. That way, we can recommend the best approach to addressing your bone or joint injury or illness. In many cases, if you have a serious musculoskeletal injury or illness, our surgeons will need to see you again in the future. As a result, we will not rush you during your first visit. If you have any questions after your first appointment, you can call us anytime.

Contact us and make an appointment right now. Many of our doctors have appointments available the same day. One of our experienced, New York City orthopedic surgeons can examine you as soon as possible. Contact us online or call us.
