How do I prepare for my first office visit?
  • Bring a detailed account of any new symptoms or issues that have prompted your visit. You may want to review any previous symptoms or conditions.

  • Bring a list of prescribed medications and any over-the-counter medications, supplements, or vitamins (including herbal remedies) that you are taking.

  • Write down any questions or clarifications you have for the doctor ahead of time.

  • Arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment. This will give you time to complete any documents necessary for healthcare requirements and take care of any copay’s that are due before your appointment.

  • Please turn off your cell phone when you are in the exam room and silence your phone in the waiting area. Please be courteous to other patients.

  • Food or beverages are not allowed in the exam room.

  • If you have a young child that needs supervision in the waiting area while you are in the exam room, please bring a friend or family member to watch them.

  • Advise your physician of any changes to your health profile, such as weight loss or gain, modifications to diet, change in sleep patterns, new exercise program, etc.

  • When you leave, ask your doctor when you should set your next appointment. Schedule future appointments and tests before you leave.

  • If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, be sure to call so you can be rescheduled. Late cancellation may incur a cancellation fee.
