What to Expect

Prepare for Your Visit

When you come to Weiss for your visit, be sure to bring with you:

  • Your Social Security Number
  • Insurance information including:
    • Your insurance card OR
    • Insurance company name, complete mailing address, policy group number, and your personal ID number.
    • Referral form if your insurance requires it.
    • Medicare or Medicaid card if you are covered by it.
  • Cash, check, or major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express). You may need to pay for services not covered by insurance.
  • Records. If your visit is for a second opinion or on referral, you may need to bring medical records, X-rays, results from lab tests, pathology slides, or other materials. Before you visit, ask your doctor if they have already sent these to Weiss.
  • Advance directive. Please bring your Advance directive (living will and/or durable power of attorney for health care) if you have one.

For Longer Stays

During your stay, you’ll be interacting with a number of staff members working to ensure your safe care. These practitioners include doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, radiology and laboratory technicians, transporters, nutritionists and food service and environmental service staff — but your nurse will be the person you interact with most frequently.

During your stay, a member of the clinical team will be in to check on you at least every hour, if not more often. Get the most out of your visit and be a partner in your care by speaking up! Don’t be afraid to ask questions and voice your concerns at any time.
