What to Expect During Your First Visit
To better serve you during your visit, we ask that you bring a list of your medications, prior illnesses, surgeries and allergies. Always bring your insurance card and let us know whenever you change your address, telephone number, employment, marital status, or insurance. We accept most major insurance plans.
During your initial office visit, you will have the opportunity for an open conversation with your physician. You will learn about your treatment options, what they involve, any potential side effects, and how our team will guide and support you. If you can, bring someone with you – a family member or a friend – to be another set of ears in the room. In addition to providing emotional support, they can help you remember what the doctor says, take notes for you, and remind you of key questions that you don’t want to forget to ask.
