Please arrive for your scheduled appointment on time. We recommend that new patients arrive 20 minutes early to fill out any necessary paperwork. Patients who arrive more than 15 minutes after their scheduled time may need to be rescheduled.
All of our physicians and therapist at Mississippi Sports Medicine believe strongly in the importance of every patient keeping their appointments. When patients fail to keep their scheduled appointment, they miss out on crucial medical information regarding their recovery. Unfortunately, our clinic has experienced an increased number of No-Show appointments. Therefore, we have had to institute a policy of billing patients for their missed appointments.
**If a patient is a no show 3 times, they may be discharged from our practice**
To avoid delays for all patients undergoing an X-ray or MRI, the department aims to reduce the number of patients who need to undress for their X-ray. Refer to our advice sheet that has been developed to provide guidance on what to wear when attending your appointment. Click here to view full advice sheet.
Also, as a helpful guide to prepare for your upcoming MRI, we have developed a reference sheet listing MRI Clothing Guidelines. Please refer to this document for approved clothing, clothing that is NOT recommended, prohibited clothing brands, and other reported MRI clothing incidents to be aware of.

Please call your pharmacy to renew your prescription. They will contact your physician for any necessary information. Please allow at least 24 to 48 hours to accommodate your request, as each request has to be approved by a physician and all physicians are not in the clinic every day.
If your prescription is running low, please do not wait until the weekend or until your medication has completely run out. If you are planning to travel out of town, please make sure you have enough medication to take on your trip.
