Your First Visit

Preparation for Our First Visit:

  • One or two days prior to your scheduled visit, you will receive a telephone call from one of our staff members to remind you of the agreed upon time.

  • For the first visit we encourage you to invite family members or friends who may be providing assistance in your care and/or decision making.

  • Our initial visit can be lengthy because our providers take the time to complete a thorough assessment of your medical history and current conditions.

  • Our visits vary from 1 to 2 hours depending on your specific needs and problems.

  • Please gather all medical records you have including your insurance information.

  • We also encourage you to have all your medications available for review by our clinician especially if they were prescribed by different doctors. It is very helpful if you have a written list of your medications to share with our providers. Please include all over the counter medications as well as vitamins and supplements.

  • Please share your POLST form with our provider if you have one completed. If you do not have a POLST form our provider will provide you with one if you wish. They will also discuss the POLST and your specific wishes if you would like to do so.
