First Appointment

In order to expedite time at your visit, we ask that you complete and submit registration forms on our online pre-registration system

 At your first appointment University Surgical Associates (USA) clinical staff will compile your personal information and medical history in order to complete a permanent record. Insurance company regulations may require us to file a referral number before seeing you. 

Please call one of our scheduling operators at (423) 267-0466 to check whether you need a referral number (have your insurance information handy before the call). You also check with your insurance company to find out this information.


What to bring to your first appointment? A photo ID card, any previous medical records, a list of medications or the actual medication bottles so we can be sure to get the right names and dosage information,  and your health insurance card(s). If you are not in possession of your medical records, please contact your physician's office and request your records be sent to our office.
