Every Visit

We recommend dressing in comfortable clothes and footwear. For your appointments  bring a sweater or throw, since it can be chilly in the clinic and treatment room.

Provide a list of any new medications you may have been prescribed and dosages since your last visit.  Inform your nurse of any labs or tests you may have had that were ordered by another physician.
