Modifying the Sample Forms
To open and modify the Word documents, make sure you have Microsoft Word version 2003 or higher installed on your computer. If you are working with older versions of Word or another word-processing program, you should consult that program's technical support team to open these documents. The formatting of the Word 2003 documents may change if you open them in a different program. To open the PDFs, make sure you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. If you do not have Adobe Reader, you can download it free of charge at the following URL: www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
The sample forms are meant to be general enough to apply to as many practices as possible, but you may want or need to make adjustments. First, read Practice Made Perfect, Second Edition, to become acquainted with the ideas. Pay special attention to the forms included throughout the Work. At this point you can decide if they exactly fit the needs of your practice(s). If they do, you can print the provided forms on office stationery to hand out to clients and staff as needed; you may also print the forms provided as PDFs for practice use or visual reminders for staff. If they do not, you can customize the documents provided in Microsoft Word format to fit your practice's specific needs. Please remove the notices and disclaimers at the bottom of any form before modifying it.
