Patient Forms


1. Use this page to download "new patient" and "patient follow-up" forms. All files are in Adobe Acrobat format. If you do not have the Adobe Acrobat reader, you can download it here

2a. For new in-state patients, please schedule an initial office visit so that Dr. Gross can evaluate your joint. IN-STATE PATIENTS MUST BE SEEN IN THE OFFICE TO SEE IF THEY ARE A CANDIDATE FOR SURGERY. All intial forms will be available in our office, but in order to keep your visit brief, we recommend printing and completing the new patient packet before coming in.

2b. For new out-of-state patients, we will need ALL the materials from the new patient packet (see section I). If you would like to have a telephone consultation with Dr. Gross or need help putting together your "new patient package", please contact Evelyn W at (803) 933-6170 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Once complete, please FedEx the package to:

Thomas P. Gross M.D.
Midlands Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery, P.A.
1910 Blanding St.
Columbia, SC 29201
