Choosing Wisely Campaign

Patients sometimes ask for tests and treatments that are not necessarily in their best interest and physicians often struggle with decisions about prescribing tests and procedures as a way of covering all basis. So the ABIM Foundation has joined with leading medical specialty societies to develop evidence-based lists of tests and procedures for patients and physicians to question as part of Choosing Wisely.

For your convenience, these forms are available for you to download, print, and complete at home prior to your first appointment. Periodically, we will ask you to update this information. If there have been any changes to your insurance information or medical history, such as medication changes, be sure to mention that to the receptionist, nurse, or provider at the time of your visit.
