Your First Appointment

Thank you for choosing Lake Placid Sports Medicine. Please review the following information to help you prepare for your first visit.


In an effort to maximize the efficiency of our registration process, we ask all new patients, as well as established patients with new problems, to please view, print and complete the following forms prior to your arrival at Lake Placid Sports Medicine.

What to Bring

In addition, we ask that both new and returning patients bring the following to their appointments:

  • Any of the forms that you completed at home
  • Your insurance card
  • A photo ID
  • Insurance referral, if required
  • Your co-payment. We gladly accept personal checks, cash, and most major credit cards.
  • Any X-rays, medical records, lab results, or other pertinent medical history
  • A list of current medications

What to Wear

Please wear clothes that allow you to show the injury site easily. Bring or wear shorts if you have a knee, hip or foot problem and a tank top (for women) if you have a shoulder problem. If being seen for a foot or ankle problem, bring your shoe inserts/custom foot orthoses. Please also bring or wear any other items that will help the provider evaluate your orthopaedic situation.


Please be advised that Lake Placid Sports Medicine is a busy practice and wait times, as well as visit times, will vary depending on the day, office schedule, and nature of your appointment. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
