“We expect you to provide us with your medical history, as well as information about any care you obtain outside of our practice, to include your current medications(including prescription and over the counter), recent test results, visits to other doctors and healthcare providers, hospitalizations, and emergency department visits.”

Make Each Doctor's Visit Work For You!

Write down your questions and concerns.  Ask questions.  Take notes.  Tell your doctor when you don't understand.  Learn as much as you can about how to care for your illness.  The more you know, the better for your health.

Put all your medicine (including over the counter) in a bag and bring with you to the appointment.  Talk with your doctor about all the medicine you are taking, even those that were given to you by a different doctor.  Don't stop taking any prescription medication without first talking with your doctor.

Bring your insurance cards.

If you need help ask a friend or family member to join you.
