  • If you are a return patient you will usually see your primary care provider but may see a teammate or colleague if you needs urgent care or your doctor is unavailable.
  • Your provider will review your history, medications, and previous tests.
  • Your visit will take between 45 minutes to one hour once you have been checked in.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO GET READY FOR THE VISIT

  • Bring your insurance card
  • Bring all of your medications (bringing the bottles is best)
  • Bring copies of any records you may have from previous doctors including lab results, test results, or letters.
  • Bring your glucose meter if you have one.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FUTURE
