Helpful Forms

The below PDF contains three forms all new patients need to fill out and bring to your first appointment: patient registration, patient health history, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) form.

The HIPAA form is a consent form which allows us to release information about your care to another entity, such as another physician or hospital. You will also see Emerson’s Health Information Privacy Act form, which you will be asked to complete. It gives Walden Surgical Associates permission to release information about your care to another physician or hospital.

If you are a breast health patient, please fill out the below form, which contains additional breast health information.
