Doctor’s offices are required by the ADA to make reasonable accommodations for anyone with a disability. 

  1. If you need assistance with completing paperwork before your doctor’s appointment request someone from the office to scribe for you. Give the personnel at the office advanced notice that you require assistance.
  1. Call ahead to see if the doctor’s office has an adjustable height table or employees that will help you transfer. If your doctor’s office does not have a way to get you on the exam table you might need to bring people to assist you in getting on the exam table.
  1. If your doctor’s office does not have a wheelchair-accessible scale go to a local hospital in the days before your visit and ask to use one of their scales. You can ask your physician to call the hospital and make arrangements ahead of time. Having an accurate weight is important in diagnosing many health conditions.
