Getting Ready for Your Visit

As a new patient of Northwest Medical Specialties, welcome to our practice!

Before your initial appointment can be scheduled, we first need your referring physician to fax your patient records to our New Patient Coordinator. The specific fax number will be given to you during the scheduling of your initial appointment. When we receive your records we will verify your information and start the process of filling out your New Patient Registration form.

Patient Portal

Designed to help simplify communication, our Patient Portal offers you many time-saving options including appointment scheduling, online bill pay and secure answers to your questions.

During your initial appointment set up with one of our representatives, you will be asked if you would like to sign up for our Patient Portal. If yes, you will receive an email invitation. Once you complete the necessary information, a userid and password will be generated. Use this information to login to the secure patient portal.

Next, we will mail you a confirmation letter that lists your appointment date and time, items that you may need to bring with you to your appointment, a New Patient Questionnaire, and supplemental information that may be helpful for your particular diagnosis.

How to Prepare for Your Appointment

In preparation for your first appointment, we ask that you bring all completed forms, your medical & RX card and a picture ID to your first appointment. Please complete the forms to the best of your ability. This information will ensure that you receive the best possible medical care based on your current and past general health and any related family history.

In advance of your first appointment, you also may want to review our insurance information for insurance companies with which we are contracted. Please contact them directly if you have any benefit, co-insurance or co-pay questions.

If you should have any further questions, please call us at (253) 428-8700 and ask to be connected to our New Patient Coordinator. Let them know if you are an Infectious Diseases or Hematology/Oncology patient, so they can connect you with the appropriate person.
