At Coastal Carolina Internal Medicine PA, we understand that you may have questions that you need answers to. We have assembled some of the most frequently asked questions we have been asked.1. Why do I need to check-in early?
- - Time is of the essence to us and we appreciate the time our patient takes to schedule and come in for their appointment. It helps us review necessary information to ensure correct billing and allows our medical assistant to triage the patient well in advance so the patient can have the full appointment time with the provider. If the appointment time is for 15 minutes, we want to give that full 15 minutes as a face to face time with the provider. Established patients need to arrive 15 minutes early and new patient at least 45 minutes early. 2. Why do I need to bring in my medicine bottles at every visit?
- - Updating your medication list helps prevent medication errors which can be harmful to you. An appointment to review your medicines may be necessary at times to ensure you are following the 5R's
: Right patient (is it your medicine?), Right dose, Right drug, Right time, Right route.
