Your First Visit

  • Get referrals from your primary physicians and bring them into your visit.
  • Bring your insurance cards with you.
  • Write down everything you want to discuss with your doctor. Include all your questions. We do our best to cover all the bases, but it helps if you have your list as well.
  • Ask a friend or relative to come with you. This is an overwhelming, emotional time, and besides helping you to feel more comfortable, they can act as a second set of ears and help you understand anything that isn’t clear.

During your Visit

Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Ask your doctor to explain anything you don’t understand. Make sure you know what to expect during and after your treatment. Feel free to bring a list with you.

If this is not your first treatment, be sure to tell your doctor about any unusual side effects. This will help him or her customize your treatment plan.

Questions for your doctor

  • What will happen (is happening) to my body as a result of my treatment?
  • What is the purpose of this treatment?
  • Can I expect any side effects from this treatment?
  • What should I do if I experience side effects?
  • When should I return for a follow-up visit?
