New patient information
We welcome new patients at Novant Health Salem Surgical Associates. While we are a referral-based practice, you do not need a referral to be seen by one of our surgeons. However, if your insurance requires authorization in order for your appointment to be covered, you will need to obtain this. You can make an appointment for yourself regardless of whether you are considering surgery as part of a treatment plan or looking for a second opinion on a surgery that has been recommended to you.
We make every effort to get you answers and put an end to uncertainty quickly. Whenever possible, we offer same-day or next-day appointments. To make an appointment, please call any one of our offices or contact us online using MyChart.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Bring with you to your first appointment:
- The referral form given to you by your primary care physician or other specialist, if you received such a form. This is not required by our office to be seen, however your insurance might require an authorization in order for your visit to be covered. Please check with your insurance company.
- Your completed new patient forms (below).
- A list of current medications, including over-the-counter medicines, vitamins and herbal supplements, along with doses and frequencies.
- Your insurance card and method of payment or copayment. Click here for more information about insurance and billing.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please call us at least 24 hours in advance.
An important note: Please refrain from wearing cologne or perfume to your appointment. Some of our patients are sensitive to these smells.
