For Patients 

Write it down before you arrive

Write down any questions you may have prior to your visit. When it comes to your health, there are NO bad questions. You should feel comfortable asking your doctor anything related to your health or your understanding of our care plan. 

Gather your information / Current medication(s)

As an active partner in your health care, you play a very important role. Bring a list of the medicines you/are taking, including names and the doses. For complex health needs, consider creating a medical history binder and include evaluations from other physicians. Having this with you will help expedite the process of treating your condition.

Bring someone with you 

It's helpful to have an extra set of hands and ears when hearing new medical information, so if possible, bring another adult with you to the appointment. If we can help you in any way, please let us know.

Arrive early

Allow 10 to 15 minutes for the check-in process. 

Bring a favorite book or you iPad to help make the time go by more quickly.

If you have to wait for your doctor because of an unexpected emergency or on a very busy day, remember that you will receive the same immediate care if you're in a similar situation.

Make the most of your appointment

Ask questions while meeting with your doctor. Also, remember to ask for any instructions from the doctor or letters of medical necessities that you may need.

After the appointment

As soon as you're done meeting with the doctor and nurse, take a few moments to write down some notes about what just happened during the visit; also write down any other questions you have and important phone numbers to call, such as the clinic's nursing line, prescription refill line and appointment line. When possible, make your follow-up appointment before you leave and write down new appointment dates.
