Where do I park and how do I locate the office?
In our Midtown location, you have free garage parking located at 2004 Hayes Street. You may also use the valet at the entrance to the building. The garage is attached to the medical building. You may take the elevators to the L level, and enter through the automatic doors into the main atrium.
We are located on the second floor, but you must use the Elite elevator on the first floor. You are not able to access our office via the three main elevators in the atrium. Turn left down the long hallway and use the elevator with the Elite logo on the door.
There is a parking lot to the front and to the back of the medical building. You may park in either lot. If you enter from the Elite lot, located closest to Woodmont Blvd., enter through the double glass doors and turn left for the elevator. You will take the elevator to the fifth floor and check-in with the front desk.
If you park in the MPOWER lot behind the building, you will enter through the MPOWER glass doors. Pass the MPOWER front desk and turn right when you reach the physical therapy area. The elevator is located in the gym, next to the steps. Take the elevator to the fifth floor and check-in with the front desk.
Park in the parking lot closest to Charlotte Avenue. It will be the first right as you enter from Charlotte onto 24th Avenue. Use the door located on 24th Avenue to enter the atrium. Take the elevator to the second floor. We are located to the left.
We are the first right turn on South Springs Drive from Mallory Lane. The entrance is directly across from the Mazda dealership. Once in the parking lot, park in any of the spaces to your right. There is limited parking available closer to the medical building. The medical building is across from D1. If you pass the hotel, you have missed the entrance.
Once inside, we are located in Suite 100, up the ramp and to the left, and Suite 111, through the double-doors on the right. Check the television monitor to see which side your physician is located on. If in doubt, proceed to the front desk in Suite 100, which is up the ramp and to the left.
Will I have a co-pay?
Co-pays will vary dependent upon your individual insurance plan and your network benefits and deductibles. Patients are responsible for understanding their deductible status and in- and out-of-network benefits. We will collect any co-pays at the time of check-in.
If you have questions regarding your co-pay and benefits, please contact your insurance provider.
What is a global period?
A global period is the period of time after your surgery when fees for follow up care (office visits) are bundled into the surgical fees. The period starts immediately after surgical procedure has occurred and ends at a predetermined number of days depending on what kind of surgery you have. Most global periods are 90 days following the surgery, but again, those vary.
Depending of the procedure and the progress of the patient, patients will have a series of post-op follow up appointments. Some appointments will fall within that time frame and some could be outside of the global period. Elite does not collect co-pays during the post-op period. Other services such as x-rays or other imaging, injections or any durable medical equipment such as braces, crutches or boots are billed separately and are not included in the global care package. Any services delivered outside the post-op global days are billable including office visits.
If you have any questions about you global period, please reach out to one of our billing representatives
Is billing different for injections, MRI, Surgery, and Medical Equipment such as casts and splints?
Your co-pay does not cover these types of services. There may be a separate, upfront charge for these services, and our office will work with you to provide an estimate of these charges when applicable.
Does Elite take Care Credit?
Not at this time.
How do I set up the online portal to pay online?
You will be sent a link to register for the patient portal upon check-in. If you do not receive this, please call our office at 615-324-1600 to request a new link. From the patient portal, you may send your provider messages, request refills, and pay your bills.
What if my physician is running late?
While it is a rare circumstance, occasionally, the physicians may run behind on their schedule and be seeing patients later than their scheduled appointment time.
At Elite, we make an effort to fully answer your questions and make sure you leave understanding your condition, procedure, and care plan. It is our commitment to treat each patient with respect and quality care. This means never rushing a patient during their appointment time. Please understand that while you may have a bit of a longer wait to see your physician, your physician will spend all the time you require with you to help you understand your own care plan.
During busier seasons, such as the last few months of the year, wait times may be usually high or may occur in greater frequency.
If you are in our waiting area and have determined that you would like to leave and come back at a later time, you may request to reschedule your appointment at any time. Ask the front desk to reschedule, and they will connect you with the scheduling team.
