ADVICE FOR ALL PATIENTS

Making the appointment:

Call first to make an appointment. Please call and schedule an appointment rather than walk-in.

Preparing for the visit:

Medications: Bring all of the medications you are taking with you. Bring the actual containers of the medications or a list of the medications including the dosage and the number of times a day the medications are taken. This includes over-the-counter medications.

List of Concerns: Prior to the visit, write a list of the issues that you have and would like to discuss with your health care provider.

Family/Friend: It may be helpful to bring a family member or friend with you to the clinic.

Arriving at the clinic:

Check in at the registration area on the first floor.

Beginning the exam:

Blood pressure and weight measurements are taken at every visit. They are good screening tests and important to have in order to prescribe certain medicines and make good judgments about your care.

During the exam:

Physical Exam: This type of visit is a longer, more detailed exam, which must be scheduled usually weeks in advance of the appointment. This should be done each year.

Acute Problem: The focus of this type of visit will be to address a specific concern or illness.

Several Problems: There may not be time to address all of your concerns. You should rank them in order of importance so that the most concerning issues can be dealt with first.

Ask Questions:

If at any time during the visit (or after the visit) you do not understand something, make sure to ask questions. The Health Center providers and nursing staff are available to answer questions that you may have. It is important to understand and be informed about issues surrounding your health.

After The Visit:

Your health care provider will tell you if you need a lab visit or other diagnostic tests like an x-ray. He or she will also tell you when you should return to the Health Center for your next follow-up visit.
