Appointment Preparation

Preparing for your appointment

You, your doctor, and the rest of the care team will work together to make your visit as helpful to you as possible. Here are a few things you can do to ensure your appointment is a success:

  • Bring photo identification and your insurance card to every appointment.
  • Bring all of your current medications in their original containers to your appointment – including over-the-counter medications, prescriptions, and vitamins you take on a regular basis.
  • Make a list of your health questions, with the most important at the top. We will answer as many as we can during your appointment, but may need to schedule another appointment to answer all of your questions.
  • Feel welcome to bring a family member or trusted friend with you to your appointment.
