What to Expect as a New Patient at Strasburger Orthopaedics

Once you’ve scheduled an appointment at Strasburger Orthopaedics through our online form, we’ll call you to confirm. From there, you can start getting ready for your first visit.

New Patient Forms

You can easily download your forms from our website, or ask them to be mailed to you. Filling out your forms ahead of time means we can add the information to our system quickly when you arrive for your appointment and get you into your consultation as swiftly as possible.

What to Bring

When you get ready to leave your home to come to your appointment, make sure you have the filled out forms for our office (including the new patient registration and medical history forms) as well as your other medical records, any X-ray and MRI scan images, a list of medications and supplements, and the questions you have for Dr. Strasburger.

You’ll also need your photo ID, insurance information and card, and any co-pay your insurance may require. We take cash, credit cards, and personal checks, and can work with you if needed – just tell us in advance if you need to speak to our financial department about payment arrangements.

What to Expect

On your first visit, Dr. Scott will review your records, health history and previous tests results, MRIs or x-rays. You’ll be able to ask questions and discuss your symptoms or concerns with Dr. Scott, and he’ll discern whether further testing is needed to recommend a course of treatment.

If additional testing is needed, our office will help you schedule it, and you’ll have a follow up appointment. Once Dr. Scott develops a treatment plan for you, it will be discussed and plans made for your treatment or procedure.

Subsequent Visits

On follow up visits, you may be asked to verify or update information in your patient file. If you become a surgical patient, don’t live in the area, and need accommodations, Dr. Scott’s patients qualify for the discounted hospital rate at both the Holiday Inn Express and Suites and the Fairfield Inn Suites in Lincoln.

We look forward to seeing you in our office and helping you regain maximum mobility for a happy, healthy, active life. If you have any questions or would like more information, don’t hesitate to contact us and one of our knowledgeable staff members will be happy to assist you.
