New Patient Information

Preparing for Your Visit

Before your visit:

  • Write down all of your questions and concerns and bring them with you to your appointment.  
  • Consider bringing a family member or friend to help you.
  • Bring a list of all of your medications, vitamins, nutritional or herbal supplements, etc.
  • Bring your favorite snack or lunch item to enjoy while you wait.
  • If you’re undergoing chemotherapy, you’re welcome to bring your own reading material or other form of entertainment (crossword puzzle, word search, laptop or portable DVD player with earphones, etc.). 

During your visit:

  • Arrive early enough to complete forms.
  • Bring your insurance card.
  • As a courtesy, turn off your cell phone and/or pager.

After each visit:

  • Allow yourself time to think about what you learned from your doctor visit.
  • Follow your doctor’s recommendations.
  • Prepare for your next visit by making a list of new questions, including unresolved questions from prior visits.
