After your initial record has been established, please notify the clinic personnel of any changes in name, address, insurance or billing information. To expedite the check-in process, please bring your insurance card.
We understand that your time is valuable, and we do our best to stay on schedule. However, medical emergencies may arise which might delay your appointment. Should such an emergency occur, we will do our best to keep you informed about the projected length of delay.
Lost and found
Please report lost and found items to the main lobby reception desk. The clinic is not responsible for the loss of any personal items.
Patients sometimes ask why the doctor may want to see them before authorizing a prescription refill. Some medications may have side effects that can affect your health. Your doctor may want to examine you or conduct tests to ensure that your medicine is appropriate for continued use. Your doctor or nurse can give you more information on the procedures to follow for your refills.
Calling your doctor
Our nurses and other staff who answer your phone calls are trained to ask and answer pertinent questions. If necessary, they can arrange for you to talk with your doctor or assist with making an appointment. When talking with our staff, please have paper and pen handy for instructions.
Sometimes, the doctor or nurse is not available to talk with you immediately. Please leave a message following the recorded instructions, and a healthcare professional will return your call as soon as possible.
Your medical record
Your medical record is valuable because it provides a continuous history of your medical care. Your doctor may request that you transfer your previous medical record to Mid Dakota Clinic. The information in your record is confidential and cannot be released without your written consent.
Mid Dakota Clinic doctors generally serve only on the staff of St. Alexius Medical Center.
