Your First Appointment

Making the Most of Your First Appointment

Prior to coming in for your first appointment, you will be given two medical history forms to complete before your appointment with your provider. We ask that you complete these forms and bring them with you to your first appointment.

Your provider will spend time with you reviewing and discussing the information on these forms; and with your help will be able to focus on issues and concerns, which are your highest priorities at this first visit. You may have a complete physical examination at this first visit unless you have already had one in the past 6 to 12 months or have other issues that require attention. You and your physician may then discuss which screening tests or monitoring tests will be helpful to maintain your health. At your health maintenance visit, as well as each visit to our office, we strongly encourage each of our patients to request patient education materials.
