What To Expect At Your First Appointment:

The first time you see the doctor is often stressful and anxiety provoking. Discussing health issues is tough enough but now it's a new doctor, new staff and new setting that is unfamiliar. The most important thing to prepare is the "new patient handout" listed above. Please be sure to fill this out prior to the visit. The other forms should also be signed but are not as critical to your health history. You can take you r time at home going through the handout, which collects lots of health history related to your overall health and imiportantly, conditions that can cause kidney trouble. Be sure the medication list and allergy list are as accurate as possible. If you are confused about any of your meds just bring the bottles with you to the appointment.

 

You will be greeted by Amy - our secretary who will confirm your insurance information. Please be sure to have your insurance cards with you so they can be photocopied. You will then go into an exam room for a weight and a few blood pressure readings. Our staff will confirm a brief history. I will then review your history in detail with you. You will then have a physical exam. No blood work is collected but you may need to give a urine specimen for analysis.

 

After the appointment we will confirm a plan and you will leave with typed out instructions. There is always time for questions. Amy will check you out and arrange for any testing that is ordered. She will also schedule your follow up appointment if one is necessary.
