Appointments & Hours

All scheduling of office visits is done by the Reception Desk. All scheduling of surgeries is done by the appropriate doctor's nurse or physician's assistant.

Except in the case of emergencies, it is not our policy to see patients without an appointment. Our doctors fill their schedules well in advance with, in some cases, people who have waited months to make an appointment. We understand that it is tempting to bring someone with you in hopes that they can be seen as well during your appointment time, but in fairness to those who have waited, we are not able to see anyone without a scheduled appointment. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Please bring the following items with you to appointments:

  • Your insurance card or other health coverage information. Some insurance carriers require you to have a referral or primary care physician authorization before treatment is given. Please check with your carrier if you are in doubt.
  • Walking shorts and athletic shoes (knee examination only).
  • X-rays or MRI's not older than twelve or eighteen months (if available).
  • Clinic notes or operative reports from your referring physician that relate to your condition.

Payment in full is expected at the time of your visit. Exceptions include workers compensation, Medicare, and preferred provider contracts (copay only). Check your insurance information to identify whether The Steadman Clinic is a preferred provider for your policy. Charges for physician therapy may also be included in the total charge of your appointment, but are billed separately. For your convenience we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash or check. Please contact the billing office if you have any questions or concerns.

Should you have any questions prior to your visit, please feel free to contact the clinic at (970) 476-1100 and we will be happy to assist you.


Medical Records

If in the future you need to request certain medical records from our office, please be aware that the request could take ten days to two weeks before you receive the information. We will make every effort to fulfill all medical records requests as quickly as possible.

Please contact our Medical Records department at (970) 476-1100 for assistance.
