What to bring

​The list below applies to most clinic visits. Please check your individual clinic for any additional, specific instructions.

A trusted friend or family member
  • A friend or family member can give you emotional support and can help you make good choices. They can also help you gather information, take notes and ask questions. You are always welcome to bring someone along to your appointment.

Questions to ask
  • Bring a list of questions to your appointment to help you remember everything you want to ask.

  • A list of all medications you are currently taking – including prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, vitamin or mineral supplements and herbal remedies.
  • Any medications you normally take during the day, since appointments can last several hours, depending on the nature of your appointment and the wait time.

  • CD or DVD of your imaging studies – Your referring doctor may give you a CD or DVD of imaging studies such as x-rays, MRIs or ultrasounds that you have had. If so, it is very important to bring this CD or DVD with you.
  • Information package given to you by the hospital.

Please keep in mind that you may be at the hospital for some time, and plan accordingly.
