They’ll make sure your question or concern is addressed quickly and to your satisfaction.
Things To Consider Before Visiting Our Office
- Make a list of your questions and concerns, and write them down in order of priority. You may think you’ll remember all your questions, but it’s common to forget a few during the actual consultation. Writing down all your questions frees up your mind and ensures all your questions get answered. If you know you’ll have a lot of questions, please let the office know at scheduling so the doctor has enough time to answer them.
- Bring a list of the medications you’re taking. This includes herbal medications, over-the-counter medicines as well as prescriptions. List the medication names, doses, and how often you take them. If it’s easier for you, just put all the bottles in a bag and bring the bag with you.
- Bring a list of the names and contact information of the doctors you are seeing for any conditions to enable the physicians to share information on diagnostics and procedures to ensure you receive the best care from all providers.
- Consider bringing a supportive friend or family member with you. Often, having someone with you can help you feel more at ease. Additionally, that person can take notes to help you remember key points from your discussion with the doctor, and you won’t have to worry about forgetting any information.
- Ask the doctor to explain anything you don’t understand — we expect questions, so don’t be afraid to ask! We want to be sure you clearly understand everything you need to about your condition and any medication you may be prescribed. If you are confused about how something was described, ask the doctor to explain it differently. If the doctor speaks too softly or too quickly, ask the doctor to slow down and speak up. It’s important that you hear and understand everything.
We appreciate that you have chosen us for your health care needs. In return, we hope to make your visit and any subsequent treatment or therapy as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
