Yes: If you need follow-up, lab or x-ray results, or if the doctor needs more information or to talk to you about your specific case, we need to know how to get hold of you. You wouldn't believe how many people give us bogus information and then something pops up on their condition and we have no way to contact them. So i always ask how to get in touch with patient so that i don't have to spend hours.
