Prepare for Your Outpatient Visit old
Your health care team looks forward to seeing you! Here are 3 important tips to make sure you have a successful visit at your medical home.
1. CALL AND MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT. Call your medical home to make your first appointment. The phone number of your medical home is on your new patient letter. Call right away if you need to cancel. This allows the doctor to see someone else.
2. BE ON TIME FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your clinic and find parking. Call your medical home if you need directions. If you are late, you may have to be reschedule.
3. WRITE DOWN YOUR QUESTIONS. Our doctors and nurses expect you to have questions. By talking to your health care team, you will learn about your diagnosis and treatments, which can improve your health.
