Simplify Visit to New Doctor

There are several things you can do to make your first visit to a new doctor more productive and help you get the best possible care.
For a start, jot down concerns or questions you may have, but don’t wait until the end of the examination
to ask them. It’s helpful to tell the doctor at the beginning of the visit because these concerns may
influence what is done in the first examination;
Take a list of your medications and include include information about when, how often, and what dosage you take. Include any vitamins or supplements you take regularly.
Call the doctor’s office and ask whether they require your medical records be sent there in
advance. Otherwise, take a list of the names and addresses of previous and current physicians to be kept with your chart so medical records can be requested if needed.
