Pre-Appointment Instructions


  • Please be aware that many insurance companies require patients to have a REFERRAL on file before meeting with a specialist.  It is your responsibility to check with your insurance carrier and make sure you have a referral before your appointment (if needed).


  • If you have had a BIOPSY performed in advance of a minor procedure (such as evaluation or removal of a skin lesion)  please let the office know ahead of time so we can obtain those results prior to your visit.


  • If you have had any PRIOR IMAGING, please obtain that imaging on a disc and bring it with you to your appointment.  This is not necessary if your imaging was performed by Radiology Associates of Hartford, as Dr. Tandon has access to those images.


  • If you take BLOOD THINNERS, ideally they will need to be stopped prior to any procedure.  However, please check with your Medical Doctor first to make sure it is safe for you to stop your blood thinner. Common blood thinners include aspirinPlavix (clopidogrel),  Rivaroxaban (Xarelto),  Dabigatran (Pradaxa),  Apixaban (Eliquis),  and Warfarin (Coumadin).
