Preparing for an Appointment

Virtually any appointment or procedure can be made easier by planning ahead.

If you have an appointment with a doctor’s office, be sure to bring your insurance information and the required copayment with you.  Also, if you take any prescribed or over-the-counter medications, bring a list of them, including name, dosage and schedule.

Certain tests and procedured require you to change your routine the day before.  For example, you may be asked to fast, consume a certain drug or forego your routine medications for a period before surgery.

Other things to consider are whether you have certain forms or documents on file with the Hospital already.  Many people sign a Health Care Proxy – a document that formalizes who can make health decisions for you when you are unable to make them for yourself.  Many of these same people sign and submit this consent to having their medical records made accessible, as clinically appropriate, through the Rochester RHIO, our Regional Health Information Organization.

 

If you are scheduled for Surgery, you are encouraged to complete this Pre-Anesthesia Questionnaire and bring it to your appointment.

And as always, let us know if there’s anything we can do while you’re here to help you get better.
