On Your First Visit

Please do the following:


  1. Arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment time. This allows us to process your insurance and co-pay and to prepare your chart prior to your scheduled appointment time. Arriving later than 30 minutes puts you at risk for losing your appointment.
  2. Carefully and fully complete the papers included in the forms section of this website (demographics sheet and the new patient history form).
  3. Contact your insurance company to see if you need a referral to see a specialist.
  4. If you need a referral, please have your Primary Care Physician fax your referral to us at 480-491-3500 or bring it with you a the time of your appointment. You may be financially responsible for the entire cost of the visit if your insurance plan requires a referral but we do not have one at the time of your visit. Please call our office two business days prior to your appointment to ensure that your referral has been received by our office.
  5. Gather X-Rays, lab results and doctor’s notes that are relevant to why you’re being seen. We prefer that your doctor fax information to us but you can bring copies of the information with you at the time of your appointment if necessary.
  6. Bring your current insurance cards (primary, secondary and prescription coverage) with you. If your insurance plan changes before your appointment, please call us to verify that Dr. Pace accepts your new insurance plan.



***If you need to cancel your appointment please do so two business days prior to your appointment date. There will be a $50 charge for late cancellations and no-shows for new patient appointments. Because we have so many new patients waiting to be seen you risk not being able to reschedule.***


Thank you for choosing us for your rheumatology care. We look forward to serving you!
